I would think they pull the nets where they are set. than transfer fish to trucks by boat.

I wanted to watch the carp capture on the lake, but could not get close enough.  I thought or had heard that the nets would be taken to Fish Camp to be unloaded, but wrong on that as well.  I should have taken the boat.  They were pursing the net near Door Creek.  Just checking around here to see if there is any data posted any place.  I will keep checking and post if there is anything I can find.


Thanks!

On Kegonsa yesterday. Water temp throughout the water column was 36 to 37°F. Water still dirty but could see a bit with the camera. Saw huge numbers of carp on the side scan, and looked with the camera for a few minutes. A few Swans were off Fish Camp. DNR was putting out their fyke nets. City of Madison Parks have been putting their piers in, so will be hitting the other lakes until Kegonsa clears up.

Anyone looking to learn how to keep and grow massive gills in a good body of water like Kegonsa please read up on CPR practices and implement them like the top Gill fisherman do!

Here are some great links to get started!

On Kegonsa this afternoon. Surface temp was 40°F, water dirty but the wind was good! Marked a lot of larger fish in shallows, assume vast majority were carp. DNR was out looking for their radio tagged carp. May be a commercial fishing company coming out to thin the population down some. Side note Babcock still has the gate closed to the boat launch.

On Kegonsa this morning, put in at Fish Camp since it has the piers in. Maiden voyage with new side scan unit. Windy and water dirty but wanted to compare the new unit against the old one. Still some ice in a couple spots along the SE shore and one drifting sheet out from LaFollette County Park. Saw some Robins (don't know if they were ones that stayed the winter or migrating ones), Loons, an Eagle and a frog in the parking lot. Two windy to do all the things I wanted to do, but good to be out in the boat! Rick

Took the kayak out for the first time this year in hopes of finding perch and whitebass. Was a bit windy but waves weren't too bad. Marked plenty of fish at a number of depths but could not get a bite. Did find ice down around Nichols point so for those of you screaming across the lake in regular boats keep and eye out for floating ice. Tight lines and stay dry.

Thanks for the report. Will be installing a new side scan in the boat soon, looking forward to the open water!

Ice was gone as far as I could see today. I think it left yesterday but there was so much fog on my way home yesterday I could not see the lake from highway 51.
