Carls lake south of Prior Lake

I would like to put my fish house out there but I'm not sure how the hot dry summer affected the fish. I know it's shallow and have fished there may times before my main interest is the walleyes and how they did this summer.

I don't know about the walleyes, but the crappies in Carls were smaller this fall than last fall, if that's possible. crazy.gif

Duffman pretty much echoes what I've heard, too. It can't produce crappies forever with the pressure it gets from Dec 15th to Mar 15th.

in the mid 90's carls had huge gills and crappies. a classic example of over fishing brought us to where we are today. too bad, i live 10 min from there. frown.gif i accidently caught a walleye one year in the spring. where do you catch them in winter, if you don't mind saying?

I'm not sure. I know the local sportsman club stocks the lake with walleyes almost ever year if you go to the DNR lake finder web sight you can look up stocking info and results from net. From what I see there are quite a few walleyes in there and of decent size. I have heard the steeper breaks on the back of the lake and I know some guys fish them really shallow 3-5' in the weeds.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
