Lake management of a fish population on a fifty-acre lake is an entirely different strategy than it is on a one-acre pond. A 2016 study on public lakes in Georgia found that the single biggest determining factor in the size of bluegill in an impoundment was impoundment size, followed by phosphorus content of the water. There are many inherent advantages that larger impoundments have over smaller ones, most notably their size; but there are also challenges that are unique to larger lakes, such as the fact that any management action taken on the lake, just because of the size of the water body, will cost more than it will on a small pond. We have many years of lake management experience working on larger impoundments both private and public, up to 300 acres in size; we know what it takes to make an impact on these larger water bodies, what works and what doesn’t, and can get your lake headed in the right direction sooner rather than later.
If you own a lake of ten acres or more and you’re not regularly catching bass and bluegill bigger than what most anglers have ever even seen in person, your lake management strategy is poor. Call us today and see for yourself the profound difference that real management can make!
