I am looking for some new spots to bowfish this weekend. Just wondering if anyone is seeing many carp(or any other roughfish)

I was on Frances on Thursday & saw quite a few. In the southwest end of the lake about 5' from shore I saw 8 of them schooled up ranged from maybe 5 lbs.-10lbs. LOTS in the isolated pocket in the bay on the north side too.(Hope you have a good strong trolling motor! Lots of weeds/pads.

Good Luck!! L2f

Was out on Fox today and there was some monster carp movin' in the swallows, managed to shoot 2 buffaloes and 2 carp, of course i missed alot but had good action before the winds kick up. All fish shot were 4-5 lbs but some of the carp i saw had to be pushin' 20-30 lbs

Could you imagine our lakes having those numbers & sizes of walleyes, bass & northerns as we do carp? tongue.giftongue.giftongue.gif

Just got back from fox. Between the clouds, wind, and rain bowfishing was impossible. I did see some carp take from the shallows, so they where there.

Checked out some Cannon River spots today and the water is really dirty, making bow-fishing tough. I hit a small creek around Northfield and shot 5 carp, 2-3lbs before it got cloudy.

I think if you'd try Frances, you'd get quite a few. I could narrow down the spot if you would like. Are you familiar with Frances? There isn't much wind tomorrow & it will be out of the N.W., (all the better) should be a good day for it. cool.gif

Thats a little bit far out of my area but thank you for the help. I mostly go from shore after work locally(Farmington)for a couple hours and then hit the area lakes in the boat on the weekends. Thanks

I have been thinking about trying down by Frances, Rays, Tetonka, or Elysian. Maybe this weekend

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
