if you are going on a lake looking for carp go when the day has been hot and little to no wind the carp should be sitting somewhat out of the water or slightly under the surface.. i have no experience with rivers but have bowfished lakes and ditches here in sw, mn for 4.5 years.. aim under the fish and inch when its under the water.

any lake with carp in it will be good at the end of may when they're spawning. just look in the shallows

eary season find the warmest water. most of the time that will be bays on the north side of the lake. Use the DNR lake finder to find lakes that have rough fish in your area.
