Creel Data Entry Form

Our Members Rocked 2022!!
MN BASS Nation members entered 475 creel surveys in 2022. This information will help the MN DNR monitor the health of Bass fisheries all over the state. Fisheries the DNR may not have time, staff or funding to otherwise monitor. Thank you for your participation!

We gave away some great prizes from AFTCO. Jason Christie Hoodies, Samurai 2 hooded fishing shirts, the awesome Reapers and more! Winners were selected randomly throughout the year. (Winners selected from creel survey participants)
Thank you for helping with this important project!! Hope to see you on the water in 2023.

Since 2003, Minnesota B.A.S.S. Nation bass clubs have provided the Minnesota DNR with bass creel survey data. Creel surveys provide valuable information such as:

  • Maximum size and mean weights, which are indicators of size structure and exploitation. Catch per effort, which are indicators of standing stock and abundance

  • Relationships to lake habitat condition, such as secchi disk, aquatic plants, shore land condition, and other physical, biological, and chemical descriptors

  • Angler effort and success rates, which are indicators of potential exploitation rates

  • Creel Survey data may be submitted to MN DNR through the link below:
