Where did they go???

8 posts in this topic

A couple weeks ago the carp were all in shallow spawning, now I can't seem to find them. Do they come back in shallow? Where do they transition too?

Try early morning in cattail areas or around trees hanging in the water. Another option is to go at night. If you do not have a boat you might want to check out small rivers and creeks.

I have a boat and rigged up a platform and lights but the generator I have puts out too much noise to be legal I think. I tried out on Buffalo last weekend and woke up some locals, they didn't look too happy. Not to mention the water was about as clear as coffee.

Was out on Tuesday for a few hours and saw lots of them in the lily pads, ended up filling a 50 gallon barrel full of them between 3 guys so it was a pretty good day.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light. 
    • He is still out there, at the hearing for DeVoss, proving why he needs to retire to his new 600k lake home on Lake Champlain where he can spend his days searching for Champ, the monster said to live in lake Champlain.     http://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/314783-assange-lawyer-conditions-not-met-for-assange-manning-extradition-offer   Almost got him!
