I have fished Gibbs a few times through the ice, and once during open water. When open water fishing I saw 2 or 3 carp near the launch swimming around. 

Curious, is there a good population of carp in there? If so, and if the clarity is decent, I'd like to come down and bowfish for a night or 2.

Thanks for any info!

Fished Gibbs this morning along with about 20 other people.  After someone drove their ATV out there the slush got even worse.  About 20 yards out from the landing it's real bad, then it doesn't really get any better.  Couple of dry areas, but few and far between.  Ice was 5 to 6 inches every where I drilled but about six inches of water underneath 6 to 10 inches of snow.

As for the fishing noone I talked to did good out there.  My daughter and I caught 2 tiny perch and a small bluegill, and a few others did about the same.  I did not see any northern or bass caught either.

Have not fished gibbs how ever i can speak for all other rock county lakes im sure gibbs is no different. Lakes froze uneven and i am not going out again with tonights snow because the snow helped freeze open water but snow on ice is insulating 2" i was on all other lakes and thay froze wierd you cant see snow spots with the new snow cover tonight. Hard to explain what i mean but when you drill 1 1/2 rotation with auger and hit water you know what i mean and how lucky i got not breaking through

Was out today still, slow. Just want to thank everyone who was out there today ( some school group) and before for leaving there trash all over the ice water bottles, wax worm containers,  and a brake drum off of a truck. Thanks for leaving it how you found it.
