Bow Fishing Spots

Recommended Posts

Metroguy99

I have recently purchased the spool and arrow need for a bow fishing excursion. Although i dont have a very good shot, i am looking for some area ponds/lakes with large carp populations. I have been thinking of going over to Harriet.

Thanks for your suggestions

Metro,
Keller Lake USED to be good for that BUT they haven't cleaned the lake so now its REALLY weedy and dirty. BUT there are still some spots at Keller for bow fishing

I'll offer three suggestions based on what I've seen:

1. North shore of Harriet.
2. SW corner of Medicine (were absolutely everywhere on 6/4)
3. Tanagers and Maxwell on Tonka. Again, everywhere, but this was earlier in the spring.

From past experience you might try north arm on Tonka as well. I remember they were so crazy they crashed into my boat in the milfoil.

I'd try Basset Creek Park in Crystal. We used to go down there and catch (by line) and spear tons of them. There is a creek area and a medium sized pond area. Its east of Douglas Drive on 32ND Ave. There are a few parking spots. Good luck!

Harriet is loaded with big carp, but I doubt that it's legal to bowhunt them. Too many people around & too many restrictions. There are lots of big carp cruising the shallows on Harriet right now & the water is clear. Great option if it's legal. Good luck, Vern

North Arm is loaded with spawning carp. They are up so shallow that they are half out of the water. Remember, there is no limit so.....STICK 'EM.......BY THE HUNDREDS! As if you can't tell, I am not one of those who extolls the virtues of the carp.

White Bear lake in the creek next to the Ramsey beach. I use to bow fish here once a year when the go into the creek for spawning. It was always the 2nd or 3rd week in June when the water temp get to 68+. With the later spring I bet they are about to move in. I found this spot while biking and there was a guy with a flatbed trailer who had a pile of hundreds! The more you take the merrier smile.gif

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!
