Walleye Population

Elusive nature. Handsome appearance. Tasty, white fillets. It's no wonder that the "eyes" are Minnesota's most popular game fish!

The 2009 MNDNR survey indicates that the 7th Crow Wing Lake supports a good population of walleyes in both size and numbers. The survey sampled many walleyes in the 15-19 inch range and the 20-24 inch range. The walleyes in the 7th Crow Wing Lake are considered by the MNDNR to be above the "typical" range for this class of lake.


Crappie Population

Fun to catch. Beautiful markings. Sweet-tasting, white fillets. It's no surprise that so many anglers love to fish for "slabs!"

Based on the 2009 MNDNR survey, anglers should find good populations of black crappie in the 9-11 inch range. Anecdotal evidence from the 2013 season suggests that segments of the crappie population are reaching the 12-14 inch range.


Northern Pike Population

Voracious predators. Fierce fighters. Chunky, white fillets. Nothing gets the blood pumping like hooking a "big ole gator."

The 2009 MNDNR survey indicates that the 7th Crow Wing Lake supports low to moderate northern pike populations. Samples from the survey found moderate sized (20-29 inch) to quality sized (over 30 inches) northern pike in the 7th Crow Wing Lake.


Largemouth Bass Population

Jolting strikes! Wild, airborne leaps! Fierce fights! That's what fishing for "bucket-mouths" is all about.

The 2009 MNDNR survey indicates that the 7th Crow Wing Lake, with it's excellent aquatic habitats, supports quality populations of largemouth bass. The survey found good numbers of largemouth bass in the 15-19 inch range.


Bluegill Population

Easy to catch. Easy to clean. And not bad eating. The only hard part is keeping track of how many you caught!

Based on the 2009 MNDNR survey, anglers should find good populations of 6-8 inch bluegills in the 7th Crow Wing Lake. Anecdotal evidence from the 2013 season indicates that 9-11 inch bluegills are becoming much more common.


Yellow Perch Population

These "miniature walleyes" are both fun and easy to catch and produce small, sweet-tasting fillets.

Based on the 2009 MNDNR survey, the 7th Crow Wing Lake supports excellent populations of yellow perch in the 6-8 inch range. Ancedotal evidence from the 2013 season indicates that 9-11 inch perch are becoming much more common.
