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.

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?

      Oohhh, I'll tell you what folks, it is just a beautiful day to be in the northland!!!   Heard that one a time or two.   Classic Country Sunday, the opening 15 minutes were the best.
