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'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.

      We wait until the snowmobile club stakes the trail before going through the narrows.
