where are you catching carp now?

Recommended Posts

Looking to take my little brother shorefishing this afternoon. Hopefully the rain might trigger some feeding.

Coon rapids dam has just been too busy-shoulder to shoulder. Ford dam has been slow this year.

Could anyone point me towards some good spots-not too far from the uptown area? looking for shorefishing. I normally fish for cats but it's fun to catch carp with kids.

Feel free to email me: [email protected]

Just looking to expand my fishing horizons in the cities..

I've been catching a bunch of little ones in Crystal Lake in Robbinsdale. Last weekend I got into a great streak on the middle part of Twin Lakes, also in Robbinsdale. Got 5 fish in about an hour, two over 20lbs. Went out there today again, didn't even get a bite.

I also caught one on Calhoun tonight. Accidentally snagged it with a crankbait. Thought I had on a monster muskie, but it was just a carp, pretty good sized one though, maybe 10-12 lbs.

It seemed like there were a lot of large carp cruising the south side of Calhoun, maybe 20-30 feet from shore. I like fishing in that area (between the dock and the beach) for any species, mainly because it's the only area not socked in with milfoil. I saw several "feeding bubble" trails and plenty just cruising by me as I waded and casted. Seemed like every one was 15+ lbs. Really nice sized.

Id just go out there and toss out a handful of corn and put some on your hook.
