It’s no secret that Juno Lake near Edwardsburg is a good fishing lake. Bluegill and bass fishermen love it.
The Michigan DNR paid a visit there last month to see just how good it is.
“We hadn’t been there for several years, so we wanted to get a good look at it,” said Scott Hanshue, fisheries management biologist.
The fisheries crew set large and small nets to capture young of the year bluegill, forage, non-game fish and whatever they might encounter.
They also ran a shocker boat around the shallows at night. The shocker boat has long electrodes to put out enough juice in the water to stun fish to the surface where they can be netted, measured, scale samples taken and released.
The survey included connecting waters of Christiana and Painter lakes.
