I don't remember exactly when but durig the middle of summer sometime, the weeds on Brown's lake die and float to the surface(i think its from the DNR), and the carp roll on the top of the water during the hot sunny days. My grandparents used to have a cabin out there and I can remember this happening every year, I haven't been back there in the summer for some time now so maybe you guys can correct me if I'm wrong or know more specifically what time of year this happens.

I posted some lakes on the Rough Fish page.

Not sure where the idea comes from that the DNR is out there killing the weeds and stirring them up, but just like a lot of the lakes in the area, there is a mid summer die-off of most of the submerged vegetation. Once it dies, it is pretty easily moved around just from boat traffic and wave action. Its probably a good time to find carp munchin' on some grub.

As for earlier in the year, once the season opens there are a lot of good lakes for bowfishing. The clear ones are easier to find the fish, but it also makes it harder to get close to them. The chain near Richmond is always a good bet and the crow river anywhere will have its share of green monsters cruising up and down it. The channel between Rice and Koronis could use a little thinning of the rough fish too!

Good Luck

A good source on finding out what lakes are good for bow fishing are Brian or Keith at Mike's Archery. I know Brian runs a tournament on Clearwater and is president of the state bow fishing.

Try below any of the dams in the area. They grow 'em big in the river.

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)
