Carp Spawn?

4 posts in this topic

Does anybody know when the carp will start to spawn in the minnesota? I know a few good spots, but for the life of me i cant remember when it was I fished them there last year. I know the water temp is too low and with highs in the 40's throughout next week i'm thinkin' it could be awhile.

Ya, i wasn't planning on bowfishing. Want to bring the fly rod down and get it some action since i haven't been able to make it down to the streams. Plus not much puts up a better fight than a carp on the fly!

From the Book; Carp on the fly.

41F Carp begin pre-spawn move to shallows.

63f Probable lower limit for spawning.

66f Optimal temperature for carp.

I hope this helps.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
