I haven't posted here for awhile so I went after some carp today so I would have something to post.

This one went 9lbs 2oz and was cought using a 10' Steehead rod. I cought a 9lbs 13oz on a 6wt and the first one of the day was 15lb 11oz cought on a swimbait and a fliping stick.

DEADhead this is the spot we fished.

I thought that spot looked familiar. Nice fish there Muddog. What pattern did you take them on?

It looks like pea soup but I could see bottom in 4' of water. Last year I could see bottom in 11 FOW on this same lake at this time of year..

Imitation corn, A modified Madison river pattern. The one with the steelhead rod was on sweet corn with a small shot of anis smelly jelly.

I need help on this one.

Is it legal to chum for Carp in the state of Minnesota? I've read that people throw corn in the water to get them feeding. I never thought you could do this. Or does this not apply to "REAL GAMEFISH".

Muddog, there is no statute that directly prohibits chumming, however, most COs consider chumming as littering so they will often cite you with littering if you are hardcore chumming with a lot of corn, etc.

    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
