Final 2011 Run Statistics

Lower Shore Creel vs. Trap Numbers:


Lower Shore Creel Survey Numbers:


Mid Shore Creel Survey Numbers:


Upper Shore Creel Survey Numbers:


Shorewide Combined Creel Numbers vs. the Shorewide Creel Average:


Only two notes: 1. I'm using the term "Shorewide Creel Average" pretty loosely. This is only the 2nd year the DNR has reported the numbers in the format they are now using. As such the "average" only represents 2010/2011. Still Better than nothin'! 2. There are still fish on the Upper Shore...

Any questions please post them in the comments section and I'll try and answer them asap. Regards - NMF
