Good luck this time of year. Maybe spawn time, but not now. Carp is another story though.

I would talk to your local CO and see if he would know. Maybe DNR is pulling carp out of a local lake. I think most times, this meat is spoken for or a company comes in and does it for the meat.

Good luck!

I can not shoot them with my bow for at least a month. I caught a few fishing cats this weekend, but need WAY more.

I see you can't use your bow. It is too bad cause I think right now you could get all you wanted below the powerplant in Redwood Falls. As a kid we used to spear them down there. There used to be hundreds of carp on the surface just downstream. They always just laid right under the surface of the water in the shade. If you still need some when you get better shoot me a email.

I will get ahold of you next time we go shoot. On average we come home with about 100-200lbs for a full days shoot this time of year. Problem is we don't shoot very often this time of year.

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
