MULE BARN - HOME COUNTRY

Details

The focus group broke up after an hour and a half with laughter and full tummies and hugs and handshakes. Dewey got his tie clip caught on Mrs. Doc's sweater as she hugged him, but that was his only physical disaster and it was a minor one.

As the small group left the Mule Barn's private dining room and walked out through the main coffee shop, there were envious glances from the regulars who weren't asked to participate in figuring out how to increase sales in red wiggler fishing and...

CONTROLLING BAGWORM

Details

If you have seen "organic" looking bags hanging on your trees and shrubs, or even in your grass, they are most likely bagworm. During the fall season those bags are filled with hundreds of eggs that winter over and hatch in the spring, usually around late May and early June. The fact that they are filled with eggs in the fall is the reason that spraying now is not the best time. Spraying during the spring, after they hatch will give you the best results. For now, simply hand-pick the bags and...

FISHING - HOME COUNTRY

Details

The problem Marvin Pincus had yesterday was simply time. You see, he'd found that new-to-him but older-anyway deluxe glass Fenwick fly rod at a yard sale and snapped it up. While others had succumbed to the flyweight temptations of graphite, give Marvin a grand old glass Fenwick and just turn him loose.

This rod was for a four-weight line, which he didn't have, so he had to go to the store and outfit himself with all new everything for it. So by the time he had his "outfit" ready to fish, it...

BLACK “SPECKS” WAS LAKE CONCERN

Details

When Jack Sutton noticed a dense cloud of tiny black specks along his frontage at Yellow Creek Lake in mid-May, he thought it was the start of another algae bloom on the surface of the 151-acre natural lake in southern Kosciusko County.

But these specks were different. Turns out they weren't even plants.

They were daphnia eggs, what biologists call ephippia.
Daphnia are microscopic animals that are a favorite food of small fish. They feed on algae and are a natural part of the aquatic food...

WEATHER IMPACTING AQUATIC PLANTS IN AREA LAKES

Details

This year's late winter thaw and cool spring weather have slowed the growth of aquatic plants in northeast Indiana lakes. This should, according to DNR officials, delay and may even reduce the need to use chemical herbicides to control vegetation in lakes where there are such issues.

Each year residents at more than 125 area lakes hire commercial pesticide applicators to spray aquatic weeds where they interfere with boating and swimming. To legally do so, applicators must first obtain a permit...
