I wouldn't doubt it. I've seen plenty of carp hunters out there and that's why I stopped night fishing out there a few years ago. Im all for thinning out the carp but what I witnessed was usually bad let's just say that. I'm really surprised it's still allowed on the lake, yet this was a few years ago since I've been there so I imagine I'm just speculating.

Thanks cool hawk, for the tip. Been on river a lot lately. And ur rite it was just an observation. Maybe I am wrong, and hopefully I am. Sometimes mistakes happen we are all human. I applaude all of those who are out there shooting carp. It needs to be done. So have fun be responsible and shoot away. All anglers should applaude their effort.

Yea barefoot, the stripers were surfacing all afternoon sun. In regards to the Muskie I apologize to any and all bow fisherman who think I am blaming them. Barefoot is right stress, disease, deep hook set can be doom to fish also. I have bow fished myself and so has my brother in law. Hole in the side looked like it had been shot. Not trying to start any wars.

Wow, hostility! Guilty conscience?

Yeah WB seem to be slowing down. Caught a few LMs, but this isn't a really a great LM lake.

tried the eyes before sunset last eve with no luck even though more fish are up in the few shallow weed patches with cloudier water. Then as sun went down we looked for surfacing stripers. Few scattered schools were hard to catch as my tm batt was getting weak. Managed a few small ones and couple in the 14" range before the skeeters jumped us and had to run. Wife saw them surface feeding all over during the afternoon so, most were well fed already? Son hooked a couple off the dock and a nice bass too during the day. Was another quiet, beautiful evening on the water and nice to just be out....Saw picture of the dead musky. Some just die, whether hook and release wounds, stress from fight in warm surface water after being dragged up from cooler depths, bacteria infections, etc. It happens. If really worried about them we shouldn't fish for anything when water is this warm? Ya never know when you will hook into one even when fishing pannies or basss, northern, eyes etc. Not going to quit fishing for two months, are you? Cool

Jeter - until you see somebody shoot a musky with a bow keep your mouth shut! Be careful with speculations!

Late report from sat.. Made it out for a few early morning hours b4 the skiers were awake lol.. I ran into 1 striper frenzy managed to pull 1 out before they were gone. Was cool to see them tho thanks for good info barefoot! Also landed 4 pike 1 largemouth all on spinners Med/fast retrieve. Weeds still remain few and far between but seemed to b a few more than my previous swan visit..

Was on my sisters and bro in laws pontoon tubing swimming etc. this afternoon. Came across a Muskie bout 42-45ish, that sure looked like it was stabbed by a arrow. Sad I hope it was accidental be sure what you bow fisherman are shooting at. Got no problems with those who love it, and s@&$ happens. But be sure guys.

striper surface action spotty and slower last few outings at dusk. Still a few to be had if you can get close quick enough. While waiting for them to turn on we been casting up near shore, few shallow cabbage weeds etc. Hit a few eyes in 2-3 fow near cabbage, on small cranks. One keeper and lost a few at boat handing off rod to kids to reel in etc. Water more stained and still a bit high so, fish coming up shallow in low light to hunt minnows in weeds. Released a couple nice northerns and lost something big trolling couple days ago. Lot of planer boards and long lines, tower cable/ski boards etc. to dodge while traveling up and down lake. Keep an eye out and keep your distance from others.

Water has a little more of a stain to it, but weeds about same. Wind direction has weeds to deal with on top of water. (from getting cut up by boaters) Good luck.

No muskie action last night, whities worked weed lines around 7:30pm to 8. Did not try for them. North shore by golf course looked the best.
