Has anyone been seeing many carp?

11 posts in this topic

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

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.
