Feeding Frenzy...

6 posts in this topic

Carp that is..... Dad was looking out the window tonite over Union and he says ' look at those fish jumping ' grabbed the bino's and there were litteraly hunderds of Carp out there feeding on the surface, they were all hanging over 10 - 20 f.o.w. most just were running thier mouths on the surface. Must have been some type of an insect hatch or something.

It was fun to watch.

I was out there for two mornings last week. The carp were so thick on the shores that there was a foam on the water from their frenzys. The entire shore was alive with jumping fish. They were so crazy that some were even being pushed up on shore.

Yeah, when I was younger and had more time to spend on the lake, we would see that alot, we had some good times spearing them.

I wasn't on the lake this weekend but it sounded like there were a few guys out there shooting them with bow and arrows...... go get 'em boys!! Might have to try that sometime.

I guess back in the days of old the locals used to net them but I'm sure that wouldn't fly today. To bad I think the walleye population would come back strong then.

All I know is after seeing all that, there is no doubt that that lake needs some cleaning out of carp. That was way too many carp for such a small lake to be healthy. There had to be thousands of them. That lake has such good potentual for Eyes and other fish, too bad. I know them carp are hurting the game fish in those numbers.

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
