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 don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
