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".

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
