To evaluate populations and stocking success, we netted or electrofished lakes managed for muskellunge (muskie) in early spring.

* Northern pike and walleye counted only during the first week of survey
Largemouth bass are best sampled in spring and early summer using electrofishing-- running electricity through the water with a specialized boat, typically at night. Fish are temporarily stunned and brought into the boat for counting and measuring, then returned live to the water.
