I've never shot there but Little Elk lake is supposed to be decent. I think there's a culvert or something on that lake that people shoot by sometimes.

If you are willing to drive, Little Elk is good. Baxter is good too. 20, 25, possible 30's in Baxter. Been a long time since I have been to Elk.

shooting from shore might be tough but one could walk along the east side of freemont and get a good vantage point to the lake and it suprisingly clear there at times and carp can be seen otherwise the north road on freemont also.....baxter without a boat would be impossible and little blue you would have the culvert that goes under the road but if they are at the culvert I would go to the Baxter/Tennison culvert as there are less lily pads and more room to work.....other than that I would say maybe work the rivers in the area such as elk,miss, or rum......there is also the cuvert by the landing at elk lake in zimm.....tough to bow fish without a boat I would imagine

I live on little elk and their a tons of carp in it please take em out and the spill way on the south side does get pressure but there are a lot of carp in the creek. I live just off the lake and I have a dock that you check out dont know how many carp would be if front of the dock but my kids alway seem to see some. email me for more info at machonellc@yahoo.com

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
