I'd start by trolling fast and shallow on the windy side of the lake for walleyes.

As for the carp, they were thick last weekend on the north side in the long beach area of the lake cruising the shallow sand up by the bank.

we fished for 5 hours on saturday; it was tough keeping live bait away from bass and perch. fished many different areas from priest point and then moving east....got three eyes on slip bobbers. 13-16" fish. tossed em all back. when pulling cranks all we hooked were small slough sharks. the northerns were hitting really hard though which was fun. all in all a beautiful day on the lake, and for as calm as it was i couldnt believe there wasnt much recreational traffic, even in traditional "boating areas".
