well instead of dragging lindys all day we decided to take advantage of the weather and get out the waders and bows for a little carp shooting. started out on a few bays on artichoke but the fish were deep and spooky. moved over to the west end of oliver and hit the jackpot. could have had a hundred fish day easy but we were passing up small males and shooting the big females. the buffalo were in really shallow spawning, and the carp were doing what carp do best; getting as shallow as possible dang near onto dry land sunning themselves. all in all we got 21 carp and 10 buffalo, with the two carp in the front of the picture going over 20 lbs.

lawdog; we use the carp on bait piles for 'yotes, fertilizer, and sometimes an old man and his family i know will take the small ones and can them or smoke them or something.

Just curious if anybody has checked out Oliver for Walleyes this spring? My wife grew up on the south shore and we will be in the area visiting relatives soon and would like to give the lake a try.

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      tried this last year,   not worth it in my opinion.    But I always wondered if I could eat the rusty crayfish.  has anyone tried?
