    down, and only one play under his belt, Stikle was in a serious predicament. He had to do something, and it had to be done immediately. He tried dressing as another star athlete. That did not work. He tried working out; jogging, lifting weights, running sprints. No success with that either. He even tried paying off his teammates so they would allow him to play. Of course, there was no chance at two plays with that strategy. Stikle was beginning to lose hope. Two evenings later, on Friday night - the night in advance of gameday, Stikle sat down to a dinner of fried, home-caught bluegills with potatoes. He knew if he did not play tomorrow, this would be his last meal with his family. Therefore, he decided to make the most of it. He indulged in a whole crockpot worth of cheesy potatoes, two plates filled to the brim of sweet potato fries, and finally a whole package of 20 or more bluegill fillets. Unfortunately, after the meal he felt miserable. His stomach ached, and he knew tomorrow morning would come with a rude…

    For some, fishing isn't just a hobby, its a way to survive. Not only are panfish the most targeted species, perch, crappie, and bluegill provide an excellent source of healthy food, and fun for all anglers.

Despite previous surveys showing the current possession limits are okay, I think Minnesota should raise the panfish limit because some people rely on fish as a main source of…

    discovered that Bullhead Catfish had taken over the lake. They did not know that they had Bullheads until they were draining the lake. Bullhead Catfish aren’t good at all. They are small catfish that don’t get much bigger than a pound or so. They are worthless and they can easily take over a lake in no time at all. At the time I had a ten-gallon fish tank that I liked to put fish in. I never had good luck with goldfish and gave up. Although occasionally, I would put a few small bass or bluegill…

    The data shows that once the round goby was introduced to the ecosystem the native species began to decline. The four native species in lab were perch, bass, bluegill, and walleye.

In graph one it is shown that the smallmouth bass still survived greatly even with the round goby in the ecosystem. In table 2 the round…

    The sun is just beginning to rise as its beautiful orange rays of light shine across the lake reflecting off the morning mist. Not a cloud in the sky, it was truly a beautiful day. I could hear the slightest ripple coming from the lake as the cool spring air slowly formed a wake. Towards the bank of the lake, there were many bluegill nests with fish as far as the eye could see. The larger fish guarded the beds as the little ones peacefully remained in the nest. Near by, a fallen branch upon it…
