Fabalust,

I believe you are talking about bobbers made by Thill. Farm and Fleet carries them as well as Dorn and Gander

I haven't seen any carp in the river yet. I've seen a few boats going by looking for them but no action. I'm starting to see more minnows and a fair amount of crawdads along the edges but not many panfish hanging around just yet.

Maybe someone with more knowledge than me can speak better to this - but I don't think they're letting much water through the locks yet because the river is very slack with a fair amount of floating algae hanging around. The level is up about 6" after the recent rains but it still looks low. There's not much current that I've noticed, compared to what I normally see.

Not sure how close to the Olbrich shore the carp are at right now. When I get that close I'm shutting down equipment and navigating the boat. Did see a bunch at the locks this morning (part of the river is closed to fishing until the opener). May be some in the Tenney Lagoons or in the river also. Water levels are up a little but clarity is bad...

went out today 6pm - 9pm. caught some 7" gills and one 7" crappie. saw other fish caught, but i was too far away to see if they were of any size. it gets crowded quick, so get there early. i did find something by bernie's beach that i'm sure someone wants back. message me with a description of what you lost and we can make arrangements for it's return. thanks.

Where on Olbrich are the carp. Can you hit them from the pier near the landing?

Piers are in at Olbrich, water temp @ 50' is 41.5°F, clarity still bad. Checked some structures to see if there were any panfish hanging on them, wasn't. For a while the weather was perfect, sunny and no wind. rick

When the water warms up a bit they're in off of Olbrich, see hundreds of them with the side scan...

Anyone target large Carp this time of year, where is a good spot to try out. I know there are some decent spots on Mendota but was curious about Monona this time of the year. Thanks

On Monona this am. Water temp down to 40' was 41.5°F. As expected water clarity very poor. The county has the buoys out on the rock pile and Wyldhaven. Rick
