During the evening of April 13, 2017, Service Vet, Brandon Smith of Elkhorn, arrowed one of fourteen carp he and two of his buddies were harvesting on Eagle Spring Lake.
It was the first 2017 tagged carp harvested.  So by their agreement, they will be splitting $1,000.  Any additional tagged carp harvested during 2017 are worth $500 each.
This particular carp was one of four tagged in July 2014.  One of these four was harvested on November 15, 2015, so two remain from 2014 along with the two tagged in 2016.  Since the tagging program started in 2009, thirty have been tagged.  With this latest tagged carp, a total of four have been harvested with a total cash payout of $3,500.  In total, more than 3100 carp have been removed from Eagle Spring Lake/Lulu Lake through this program.
You could be the next winner.
The tag must be intact on the fish for the reward to be valid.  For payment call Tom Day (262) 594-3231 or John Mann at (262) 594-8972.
Please do NOT return carp to the lake.
The public boat launch dumpster can be used for disposal of the carp.
Please do NOT use the dumpster for disposal of fish from other lakes.
Please keep noise and lights at a minimum late at night.
Thank you and Good Luck!

There is no launching of boats and then parking in the Pub’s parking lot.

Thefts may be occurring again in 2016; reports of gas being stolen off the boats moored along the shores of Eagle Spring Lake.
We advise all residents of the lake to always remove or lock up any and all boating/fishing equipment when not in use.  This includes gas tanks, batteries, life preservers, anchors, skis, inflatable rafts, fishing poles, tackle, etc.

Your help in keeping temptation to a minimum is appreciated.

At the November 12, 2014, Town of Troy Board meeting, the Board of Supervisors addressed the year-long concerns regarding Lulu Lake, and the request for a proposed electric only ordinance on the lake.  The Board decided that they were not in favor of passing the ordinance but is in favor of forming a Research and Education Coalition for Lulu Lake, that would report to the Town of Eagle and Troy every 3 months, plus provide an annual report to the Towns in December and explain their findings.
Town of Troy feels the Coalition would create technical and public outreach activities, with working groups conducting research and monitoring projects, and would implement public education.
The Coalition would be selected from open minded leaders from the Towns of Troy and Eagle, The Nature Conservancy, Eagle Spring Lake Management District, and The Friends of the Mukwonago River watershed.
It was also discussed that the Lake Patrols from both lakes need to be more involved with the public and residents of the lakes.  Education will be a key factor on the whole plan if it is to have a positive result for the long term future of Lulu Lake.
At the December 16, 2014 Eagle Spring Lake Management District meeting, Tom Day was appointed as the representative from Eagle Spring Lake to serve on the Lulu Lake Coalition.
Lulu Committee Meeting are being held on the 3rd Thursday of the Month at the Town of Troy Hall starting at 7:00pm; these are open to the public for anyone who would like to attend.  You may want to contact the Town of Troy before attending the meeting to verify the date/time.
