04 SUNDAY, MAY 24. 1998 LIFESPQRTS THE SALINA JOURNAL T ON THE OUTSIDE TOMMIE BERGER fisheries biologist, Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks Fishing the sunfish spawn is fun for kids It's time to grab a can full of ' worms, head for your favorite pond or small lake and take advantage of the sunfish spawn. Memorial weekend generally signals the time to get out and catch a bucket full of bluegill. Water temperatures in the 65- to 70-degree range tell the sunfish it's time to reproduce. Bluegill fishing is constant, fast action if you find a spawning bed. You might find green sunfish along with the bluegill, and in some lakes there might even be some redear sunfish. These feisty little guys are probably the easiest fish to catch. We're just darned lucky they don't reach 4 or 5 pounds. If they did, you'd never land one. The other nice thing about sunfish is that they bite on about anything. Worms are their favorite, but you can also use grasshop- : pers, crickets, small crayfish, most any kind of bug, small jigs and spinners, and even whole kernel corn. If you run out of worms, simply cut open a fish you've caught and use a piece of the intestines - they even look a lot like , worms. Spawning sunfish are not shy about their spawning activity. They build a nest by fanning out a depression in shallow water that looks like a bowl or small moon crater. They prefer rocky or sandy bottoms and often you'll see hundreds of these nests in one bed. ding area. The male guards the nest and females dart from nest to nest. In ; inost lakes, you can see all this activity in water shallow enough to '•• see the bottom. •.' When you find a sunfish bed, vyou'd better be ready for fast action. A small hook and bobber •baited with a small piece of worm dropped right in the area will of- .te'n take fish after fish. % Some like to use a small l/32nd- ounce jig baited with a small piece of worm. I like to attach a small piece of yellow or red plastic worm to the jig so I can see it ;" |n the water. ; i Drop it right in the bedding area and move it from nest to : $est. The key here is a SMALL piece of worm so the hook gets to the right place. ; Again, action can be fast and fu- ^ious, but sometimes the fish get a Jlttle spooky after you catch a few off the bed. You sometimes need '. to move to another area for a while, then move back. J Normally you can catch 8 or 10 fjom each bed before moving. And Ijisually, it's easy to catch 50 to 100 sunfish in a couple of hours if you fyork at it. • • This type of sunfish action is perfect for kids. They can catch ., ijots offish. They can really learn ; how to watch a bobber, how to set ; Ihe hook, and get a real charge ; §ut of fighting those scrappy sun'; fish. { Every youngster ought to get into spawning sunfish at least once every summer. ' In our area, many of the local Watershed lakes have good bluegill populations. Even plain farm ponds can provide some fast action. • Ottawa State Fishing Lake near Bennington has some dandy bluegill in it. Even our reservoirs Ipve some good bluegill populations after the floods of 1993 and 1995. '; Unfortunately, Saline Fishing Lake has just been stocked with bluegill so the numbers there aren't too high. Lakewood and Indian Rock lakes in Salina have bluegill in them but the size of the fish is pretty small. | Lots of anglers turn their noses up at sunfish because of the small size. If you can find a lake with some fish from 7 to 9 inches, you might be surprised the size of the fillets. ; And if you catch 75 to 100 bluegill, you will end up with a njce batch of tasty little fillets that fry up into perfect fish chips. Cleaning them-is a chore, but an electric knife and a bit of patience will go a long ways towards a successful fish fry. Remember, keep those hooks and pieces of bait small, look for tiny moon craters in shallow water, and you'll be into a bed of spawning sunfish. The action will keep you hopping, the fillets will taste mighty good, and the kids can catch fish until they get tired. Fishing the sunfish spawn is just another outing that tells us that spring is about over and sum- ier is fast approaching. Take the ids and enjoy the long holiday weekend. Hard-luck lake Mother Nature, vandalism have hurt the Saline State Fishing Lake By HAROLD BECHARD The Salinn Journal Little by little, the Saline State Fishing Lake is getting back in shape, again, for the third time in less than a decade. The 37-acre lake located five miles northwest of Salina has taken its share of hits over the years, whether it be from drought, floods, vandalism and just plain bad luck. The lake, which is operated by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, was renovated in 1989 but closed for two years in 1991 and '92 so a new fish population could be established and grow to catch- able sizes. Shortly after reopening, the lake was ravaged by the flood of '93 and contaminated by river fish species. Since then, the KDWP has removed all the fish from the lake and started over. "It's been frustrating," said KDWP fisheries biologist Tommie Berger. "During the drought, we had to pump water in there. Then (in '93) we had too much water. It's been a difficult one to manage." Seven months ago, the fish population was eliminated and the lake was restocked in March with fathead minnows and 2,000 channel catfish at three-fourths of a pound each. Plans are to stock 300 to 500 bluegill and some largemouth bass soon. There's also the possibility that 350 6 to 8-inch wipers and another load of channel cat will be stocked at a later date. "We want to develop a good fish population, but we didn't want to close down the lake again," Berger said. "People will have to be patient. There won't be any outstanding fish for a couple years." Berger said the Wildlife & Parks department has done Saline State Fishing Lake Exit 250 DAVIS TURNER/The Salina Journal Salinans Emery Turner (left) and Gary Coburn try their luck fishing at the recently restocked Saline State Fishing Lake. some things to spruce up the lake located just north and west of the 1-70 and 1-35 interchange. "We're going to try and repair the floating boat dock by the ramp," he said. "We also ' planted trees on the north side of the lake for some more shade." For Salina fishermen Emery Turner and Gary Coburn, the fishing lake is a convenient place to fish while away for an afternoon. "It's close enough to where, if you have a few hours off, you can get out there," Turner said. "I get going out there when I have some afternoons bff. I enjoy it." Turner, 65, said he's fished at the lake four times this year and had caught a few "keepers." "You know, the pan-sized variety," Turner said. "We're talking fish around sixteen inches long." Turner and Coburn would like to be able to drive around the lake, just like the good ol' days. But that route is now blocked. If people Want to fish on the south and west banks, they must walk to get there. "We were having a lot of people hot-rodding around the lake and we wanted to get rid of that," Berger said. "It also improves the quality of fishing on the south side." Coburn, 67, does admit the fishing is difficult at times, with large pieces of concrete in the water, along with high- growing brush from the flood. "It's kind of tough at times," Coburn said. "We broke our lines a few times. But it is a convenient place to get to if you live in Salina." Coburn said more piers would alleviate the problem caused by the concrete and vegetation. A handicap pier was also destroyed during the Flood of'93. "It would be a nice idea to rebuild that," said Turner, who is handicapped. The lake is open from April 1 to Oct. 1 and 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
