When it used to be an issue the beaches had to be bulldozed. Several feet deep. Those are simply strays, might have been wounded in a fish attack, temp shocked near a river channel, or otherwise diseased. Back in the day, we some times walked the beach at first light to find a couple before the birds did. We fished them on bottom for browns from the pier, and did better than the spawn guys.

It also means that location is going to be ready to sabiki in a few days, lol.

There must be a plentiful supply left as I remember reading an article (I believe on here somewhere) that the alewives prey on juvenile perch and walleye. That is second hand information so take it for what it is worth.
Lol, those threads repeated again and again.

The guy who had a dream of a massive yellow perch planting program to keep out Asian carp, and eliminate alewife. Egads good times….
