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.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
