I just found a great! carp spot literally thousands of them that you can see. Their in the stream just south of the mermaid bowling alley in new brighton. You can see a parking lot on the side of county highway 10 or park in the park and ride right at the mermaid. You cant miss it.

Bring bullet weights and good sized treble hooks. And you can figure out what to do from there. Watch out theres northerns in there too. Go on a sunny day and you can easily tell the differance.

Theres already a ton of people there but plenty of room to fish, it's a good time for sure. Heck I know i need somthing to do till i can get the boat out smile smiley

Your not lying. They started running through like a week ago but they are thick now. Probably be done in less than two weeks.

While I do not advocate any type of illegal activities it does seem everyone down there had the best success with the new "hard jigging" style. Also there was a kid with a bow and another with a spear. If you tie on two or three hooks spaced about 6" apart on your line and put a small spinner above it then its a lure. Saw people using corn and worms with no luck, with that many people down there the fish are under alot of pressure.

I was using 20lb power pro and still broke off twice. Stupid hard jigging, lots of snags. With the current and a lack of ability to turn the fish twards you it makes for a good fight.

I know a few people who say that for the pure sport of catching fish and w/o worrying about bringing home a meal, carp are among the best fighters. I've never done it but it looks fun.

Is it illegal to spear or shoot them w/bow and arrow? some places it is not b/c they aren't considered game fish, but I don't know about Minnesota. Down here in Fla. the carp they release into the flood control canals are a hybrid that is sterile, they are released to eat weeds and vegatation and can only be fished for C&R.

I looked it up and in minnesota the season for spearing and bow does not open until May 1 so yes it would be illegal. For a side note carp are considered rough fish here but as far as I know that does not matter.

Lakes are almost boatable looks like this weekend. YAY

If you already have a bow it won't cost you much to get started bow fishing and it is really fun!

There are so many people at this spot that I think it might be a bad idea. One deflection off a rock and it might end up a bad situation.

I'm leaving right now to go catch a couple crappies off shore! smile smiley

they just started moving into a local creek wink smiley
