Default lake granby

In an effort to harvest more smaller lakers (due to continuous high water years that can create a poor environment for and additional pressure on kokanee) we are trying to use the upcoming 3 lakes tournament as an additional tool towards selective harvest and adaptive management. There should be some changes this year to help harvest more fish up to 22" or so.

In an effort to catch smaller lakers to harvest, and release the bigguns, what depths, lures, and techniques would you try in the next couple months on ice?

it will most likely be Christmas or after before the lake freezes, but generally I would use tube jigs of various sizes tipped with sucker meat, use your sonar and if not biting go to smaller sizes, (sometimes the trout size jigs work best) and set the hook quickly as they bite lightly. With the high water I would look on the lake map for deep water ridges and humps up to 90'. last year we also did good on suspended fish over deep water. Send me a pm before you head up and I can get you on fish as it changes year to year.

What's the word on the mercury contamination? Does it affect the 22" and smaller fish?

Nope, the mercury levels are only high in the larger older fish, and the smaller ones are the best tasting (don't listen to zman) thats why selective harvest is the way to go and preserves a quality fishery.

If we all do our part we can keep the lake in "balance". Thank you Steve for all the work you have done with the DOW on this subject.

Now is prime time guys, if any would like to get on fish and help harvest smaller sized lakers send me a message and I will do my best to get you on fish, the anglers need to step up and help with the temporary high water issues at Granby and harvest as many 16-22" macs as we can, the suspended fish over deep water are very catchable.

I may be up this weekend, Steve. If so, I'll give you a holler. I like those smaller fish to eat.

How bad is the slush right now? My sled isn't that great in slush.
