Putting in your docks & boatlifts soon? Along with the lifts and docks you should consider putting a Zebra Mussel monitoring device on either your lift or dock.
Take a scrap piece of PVC pipe, maybe a foot or two in length, and cap one end of the pipe. Attach the capped pipe to yo ur dock or lift however you choose but make certain the pipe is submerged, about a foot or so off the bottom of the lake, preferably in the shade, so the Zebra Mussels can find their way into the pipe. Inspect the pipe on a regular basis and report anything you think could possibly Zebra Mussels to the DNR.
Several Sportsman groups are sponsoring the “1st Annual Douglas County Bow Fishing Challenge”.
The event will be taking place June 13th – June 14th. The actual contest will start 8 p.m. the evening of the 13th and the final weigh in will be at 7 to 9 a.m. on the morning of the 14th.
Big Chippewa Lake Association is donating $250.00 as prize money hoping a lot of big Carp and other large Rough fish will be removed from Big Chippewa Lake.
The prize money is used to encourage the removal of large Rough Fish using a Bow.
