Summer Phosphorous Results

Thank you to the Lake Partner Program. 

Find Phosphorous Level link mid way down

I get a kit early spring to do a monthly phosphorous test on Brandy Lake ..Here are the results.  Note lakes withy tannin usually have higher phosphorous  than lakes without.   This is free…data

The link is massive….you can see several years of data from Brandy Lake Muskoka.   We are line number 3133.  I am not sure where FOCA get the 2nd data from.

Last year are numbers were:

May – 25.8 ug/l (Micrograms per Liter)

June  – 30.8

July – 25.8

Aug  – 36

Sept – 28

There is a test online showing Nov. 41.4






And Then There Were Two

If this barrel is yours , the property owner is asking to please pick it up from the ..NARROWS…North side.     Thank you.

We are in difficult times….if you staying isolated ..and this barrel is yours ..please respond… to this post and we will go from there..

The white barrel is still waiting for its owner as well

Look….we all share the ..COMMON ELEMENT ,,,Brandy lake.

Everyone of us should consider being responsible for her health and beauty.

I have had my bay filled with sawdust…picked up floating beer can boats.    Lumber with nail or screws sticking out..?????

Cottagers at the far west end are constantly picking up floating  garbage.

Work together ..keep Brandy Lake ..nice…she is…..our common Front Yard. 



Crappie… CRAP

It is possible others have seen the new “Crappie” fish to invade Brandy Lake….I saw my first one yesterday May 17 out front…hooked by a proud fisherman..

To looked like a Sunfish on steroids.   It is considered an invasive species as it reproduces quickly and compete with walleye for food. They are voracious eaters.

Get this ..the MNR , in about 2012 stocked three lakes in Muskoka .namely…Prospect Lake, near Vankoughnet, and Morrison and Muldrew lakes in Gravenhurst.  Why did they……to improve the fish eco fisherman more types fish to catch in winter???

I think the last thing that messed up this area..was when they  dumped zillions of huge black looking flies to eat the caterpillars…that was a great summer..waves of flies so big almost knocked us off our docks!

So this is my personal opinion …WHAT WERE THEY THINKING… can’t change one thing in nature (or racing) with out affecting another.    Our poor Walleye (and ducks) have already been heavily impacted by vicious Pike.. ..

Pike were introduced in about the last two decades..,,(most likely bait release)

So…Crappie will be under your docks and dark places usually in big schools.   They taste good catch lots of the 25 CM thieves .
