Not sure about getting em w/ a bow, but we were on Cannon River over the weekend and picked up a bunch of them. There were on top the sand bars in 1 - 2 fow. We were just standing on shore and could easily spot them.

Should note that we were located just a couple miles NE of Northfield.

Hey I just talked to a relative today that farms some land SE of Gaylord he said there is a large creek that used to have a ton of carp near a bridge they could not pass but they changed the bridge and have not seen much in recent years my guess is its Rush river and the carp are still there some where just not sure where.

This comes out near Henderson might be worth a look.

Farmer.

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
