These referenced charts are from 2013 netting using special nets. The charts show that the
walleye stocking has been very successful, as has been the doubling of musky fingerlings.
The panfish are still overpopulated by a factor of 4 to 5, but hopefully the walleyes will start
to reduce their numbers. (Walleyes prey on small panfish much more than bass, northern or
musky.) Bass are over abundant, which causes a problem in that they consume almost all the
natural walleye fingerlings.
