Bartlett Lake Habitat Pictures
« on: August 27, 2019, 09:48 AM »
AZGFD went out yesterday to monitor the habitat structures. We didn't see any crappie holding on them yet, but we think its only a matter of time. Here are a few pictures of the structures.

Disappointing that it's mostly bluegill, but pretty awesome pictures. Thanks for sharing them with us!

We are pretty excited about it. These structures were installed August 6th. We are already seeing a lot of activity over them. Its a matter of time until crappie start hanging around them. I have a feelng crappie lights in September with no moon out will have a lot of success over these structures.

Did you dive the habitat or just drop a camera down? hard to say are those decent size sunfish or does the camera distort them?

Water needs to drop some more then the crappie will move into the new condos

We dropped a camera down. We caught a few of the bluegill and green sunfish. Most were 4-5 inches, a few were 7-8 inches.
