Carpin at Silver Lake Report - 3/25/07 (4 pics)

Recommended Posts

Tyler Holm

We basically had to find an area out of the wind. The carp that hit today, hit very well and hard. Whole kernel sweet corn on the bottom was the trick. #4 or #2 hook filled with corn.

We caught 7 total carp and I even hit 1 crappie (possibly the biggest crappie I’ve ever caught out of Silver Lake). The carp ranged from 3-5lbs. Nick hit the biggest carp of the day, but it slipped down the bank before we could snap a photo.

Back in High School, carp fishing was about the only game around where i grew up. I tell you what, take an ultra lite with 4 lb test and latch onto some 5-10 lb carp. You'll learn in a big hurry how too fight big fish. When i was young i learned too backreel fighting those beasts.

All the fish above were released. That's what I normally do.

I fish a couple carp tourneys every year that are designed to remove carp for the waters, and in those cases we give all our carp to a hog farmer. I guess those hogs just love them.

I used to do a lot of carpin' when I lived in Rochester. Used to catch a pile of them out of Silver Lake. Next time you plan on goin drop me a line, I might drive down. In the dead of summer during and emediately after a good rain was always the best time.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
