Thanks for the offer.

I'm exploring new lakes myself and Clitheral is on my list to check out. I've never fished it so don't know how clear it is or isn't. I do know there's carp in there though.

I'm trying to find a place for my wife and I to go this weekend. We loooovvveee sticking those rough fish.

I'm curious as to what folks do with the rough fish? Unloading my boat last week in search of some panfish, A smell caught my attention. In the tall weeds were a pile of carp that had been recently arrowed and left to rot. I'm all for getting rid of as many rough fish as one can but there must be a better way to utilize them.

I agree. Leaving them to rot where others could be offended is NOT the way to go. I'm fortunate in that I live in the country on 20 acres with no neighbors. I trow mine on my own property. I also use quite a few as fertilizer in my garden.

CLitheral is very clear but not sure what the population of carp is like in there cause I quite honestly have never seen one in there. Lots of big suckers though.

Only see carp in the shallows on Clitheral for about a week in the spring...suckers a little longer. They are nowhere to be seen this time of year...

RBuker ,

I fish Clitherall a couple of weeks a year . It is pretty clear , my best guess would be at least 6ft down maybe 8 or more (of course w/ polaroid lenses) . I see quite a few carp when fishing the shallows for bass . If you'd like I'll send some info to your e-mail that was posted previously .

Good luck out there to all !!

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
