Just wondering any of you fellow fishermen have been seeing any carp working up into the shallows yet? Name of the lakes you saw them at? Or just when you saw them?Anything will help.

Last week I saw a bunch of carp in the channel that links Big Detroit to Muskrat, averages about 3 fow the whole way...Also saw 3 muskies, 2 were probably in the 30's and one must've been mid 40's, very interesting place to cruise through. I have a 17 ft lund angler with a 115 yamaha and had no problem making it through the culverts. The carp were in schools of about 30 to 50 stacked up on both sides of the culverts.

So does that mean there are decent carp numbers in Big Detroit? what about Buffalo?

Not sure about buffalo, but from what I saw in that channel I would say there are quite a few in Detroit. That is a fairly long channel and you have to cross through 2 culverts, one under W shore dr. and the other is hwy 59. If i were interested in carp shoosting that would be a fun place to go with the shallow, clear water.

After looking at the map I guess it would be conisdered Little detroit that the channel runs out of.

are you sure they weren't white suckers?

Last I checked there weren't any carp or buffalo in the Pelican River watershed above Buck's Mill.

I certainly would see the carp in my backyard if carp were in detroit. and I wouldn't have driven to Fergus today to catch them if I could get them in my backard tongue.gifwink.gif

They may have been white suckers. once I saw them I just figured they were carp. I'd say they were about 2-3 lbs and did appear to be a little thicker than the average white sucker but if there aren't any carp in them waters then it probably was a sucker of some sort. Sorry for the misinformation.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
