Happy Halloween from Lake Sullivan Association and it’s members! On a boooootiful Saturday afternoon, LSA participated in the Trick or Trunk event at The Cave. Thank you Becki and Beverly Rentz for the cool signs, costumes, and hosting the event handing out candy to all of the little trick or treaters on behalf of LSA.
Swimmer’s itch is a temporary skin rash that is caused by an allergic reaction to microscopic parasites that are carried by waterfowl, semi-aquatic mammals, and snails. As a part of their life cycle, these parasites are released by infected snails into the water, where they may come in contact with swimmers and burrow into their skin.
Last summer only six members participated in the PLM Swimmers’ Itch Treatment Program and a decision was made to not offer that program again this year as it was not cost effective for PLM. However, should you be interested in treating your swimming area, individual lake home owners can apply for a permit for themselves and apply the copper sulfate themselves.The application fee is $4.00. Below is a link for the application form with instructions, as well as a list of vendors where you can purchase copper sulfate to treat your lake shore for swimmers’ itch. This treatment typically falls in the second week of July. If you have any further questions, please email Audrey Kuchinsky.

The 2019 Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Ambassador season was completed in mid-September. LSA Ambassadors were on both Lake Sullivan public accesses eight hours a day on weekends and holidays from fishing opener through mid-September to assist watercraft owners inspect for AIS. There were 39 weekend days and holidays covered by Ambassadors, which included 11 rainy, 2 cold and 2 hot and humid days. The fishing season, from feedback heard, produced more catches of walleyes and pan fish than previous years.
No invasive species were observed. However, the draining and disposing of bait and plant matter was a problem with a lack of a proper disposal site. The West Landing, without a dock for most of the season, disappointed several boaters because it could be difficult to enter and exit their watercraft. This was solved, by mid-season with the addition of a new dock. We offer a huge “Thank You” to Rob Litke of the Harding Bar & Grill for obtaining the dock and donating it to the township. A comparison of 2018 and 2019 showed a slight increase in watercraft activity in 2019. Again, we found the vast, vast majority of Lake Sullivan boating public to be cooperative and appreciative of our efforts to help them keep our lake free from new infestations of AIS. Nature is fun to watch as the lake becomes alive.
Eagles, ducks and deer grow up before our eyes during the boating season.
Thank you, Morrison County, for your help in keeping our lake free from new AIS infestations.
