another great carp shoot.

11 posts in this topic

well instead of dragging lindys all day we decided to take advantage of the weather and get out the waders and bows for a little carp shooting. started out on a few bays on artichoke but the fish were deep and spooky. moved over to the west end of oliver and hit the jackpot. could have had a hundred fish day easy but we were passing up small males and shooting the big females. the buffalo were in really shallow spawning, and the carp were doing what carp do best; getting as shallow as possible dang near onto dry land sunning themselves. all in all we got 21 carp and 10 buffalo, with the two carp in the front of the picture going over 20 lbs.

lawdog; we use the carp on bait piles for 'yotes, fertilizer, and sometimes an old man and his family i know will take the small ones and can them or smoke them or something.

Just curious if anybody has checked out Oliver for Walleyes this spring? My wife grew up on the south shore and we will be in the area visiting relatives soon and would like to give the lake a try.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
