Seen goldfish around?

Recommended Posts

I asked this last year and got a good amount of responses. I tried all those lakes last year, but I didn't see a single goldfish.

As of recently, anyone seen any goldfish swimming around? Still looking to add one to my life list of catches.

Thanks all!

what were some of the places you heard about?

the only one I've heard of is Loring Lake downtown and I also saw on this forum a few years ago that a guy caught a big one at the Anoka Dam, but that looked like a fluke catch

I've never caught one, but I did shoot a carp with my bow that appeared to be big koi hybrid or something (pics are over in Bowfishing forum in the Photo thread near the end)

Yes you shot a Koi. A koi is the same as the common carp just bread for looks long time ago. Same kind of mutation that display mirror carp and leather carp. Latin name is all the same.

I caught a big ole gold fish in Lake Geneva in alexandria as a kid. Think it was more of a fluke though. Got too big and was just recently got thrown out. She was fat.

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
