I dont know about west metro, but Phalen lake and Keller lake is loaded with some HUGE carps... Especially Keller lake!!! I see a ton of HUGE carps swimming in the shallow on Keller.... Im surprised nobody is out there targeting these fish! Perhaps nobody knows!

YEAH, THAT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO SEE SOMEONE ON TONKA, PHALEN OR ANY OTHER METRO LAKE IN A BOAT WITH THEIR BOW. A GUY MIGHT GET A VISIT FROM THE SHERRIFF PRETTY QUICKLY. I WOULD SUGGEST TRYING THE SHALLOW AREAS JUST SOUTH OF HUDSON ON THE ST. CROIX. LOTS OF CARP AND AN OCCASIONAL GAR. OR MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON A LAKE THAT IS NOT WITHIN ANY OF THE TWIN CITIES SUBURB. PELTIER FOR EXAMPLE. GOOD LUCK.

I've shot carp in Auburn Lake just outside of Victoria. Now that I know the law better, I'm not sure it was legal. That being said, park officials have seen me out there in the water with a bow and they never said anything to me...

I've Bowfished on Minnetonka, you just have to be smart about it. I do not believe it is illegal within city limits, you just get a lot of curious looks. Lot of big ones in there too, most are around twenty pounds...

It depends the city you are in. I shoot on a small pond in a park in Crystal. I get some wierd looks, but I checked with the police beforehand and they assured me that there were no ordinances that prohibit it.

Unless the city has a law prohibiting bow & arrows, you can legally shoot in any lake that is open to hook and line angling.

      It is my understanding that Pepin ice went out with the assist of the Coast Guard ice breaker.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.
