If you want Carp, there are plenty. I got 2 over 20 the last couple years fishing for eyeballs. One hit a taildancer and the other on a jig. The shallows all the way at the north end in the mud has carp. You could see them swimming in the shallows. Wherever you see real dirty water, the carp are close by. I'll be at Big Stone in 8 days chasing eyes, good luck on the carp.

You want to bowfish carp on Big Stone wait until the end of May beginging of June when they start spawning then just get in a boat and go up and down just about any rock covered shoreline and you should have loads of fun.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
