Carls lake south of Prior Lake

7 posts in this topic

I would like to put my fish house out there but I'm not sure how the hot dry summer affected the fish. I know it's shallow and have fished there may times before my main interest is the walleyes and how they did this summer.

I don't know about the walleyes, but the crappies in Carls were smaller this fall than last fall, if that's possible. crazy.gif

Duffman pretty much echoes what I've heard, too. It can't produce crappies forever with the pressure it gets from Dec 15th to Mar 15th.

in the mid 90's carls had huge gills and crappies. a classic example of over fishing brought us to where we are today. too bad, i live 10 min from there. frown.gif i accidently caught a walleye one year in the spring. where do you catch them in winter, if you don't mind saying?

I'm not sure. I know the local sportsman club stocks the lake with walleyes almost ever year if you go to the DNR lake finder web sight you can look up stocking info and results from net. From what I see there are quite a few walleyes in there and of decent size. I have heard the steeper breaks on the back of the lake and I know some guys fish them really shallow 3-5' in the weeds.

      I remember you jabbering something about smoking some crappies at the GTG but I don't hear the best so I thought-What? They look Great!

        So no help here it looks like. How did it end up going? Did you find a fix?. Suk's to be stranded.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
