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.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.
