Got me wondering about the number of carp caught in all available years:
2018- 270
2017-181
2016-225
2014- 698
2012- 1110
2011-2049
 
What does it all mean? Probably nothing. :)




 
I would hesitate to compare year to year very closely unless I knew that the nets were placed in the same locations and in same conditions (water temp, clarity, time of year).  Many of the species are highly 'migratory'  with even slight changes in conditions, so 'here today, gone tomorrow' could impact numbers pretty significantly if only small samplings are being taken.

We had one dead carp on shore next to our dock over the weekend crappiefisher. It wasn't in bad shape like the hundreds we saw last year, though. Just dead. No sunken eye sockets, no fungus on its skin/scales. Thanks for the input Fisherlady!

I was shocked to see they released results this fast. Notice walleye was what they caught the most of and then baitfish were next three there’s still an over abundance of bait fish. so far this year the fishing has been so much better than last year. I can’t wait until Friday to get out on the lake again preying no rain.

Nice batch of fish there Tom!

Been busy the past 2 days, but hoping to go chase Walter around the lake the next few. Hope I can still find 'em. I've got the itch real bad after last week. Tight lines!

Trap nets are not baited, nor do they need to be to work. The crib or box where the fish end up has three nets. one extends from the center of the crib directly to the shore. then other nets extend to either side, angled toward shore, but do not go all the way (sort of an arrow head shape). As fish swim along the shore, they are directed to the crib where they collect. It is said that very few carp get collected in trap nets as they are too smart (I guess the others just aren't as smart).

Atte, very nice catch.     Good times and tight lines.

Finally made it out this week. Wind was non-existent most of the time making for a lousy drift. The black dog and I did manage 2 eyes though, and caught at least one of just about everything else that pymy has to offer. Back at it with one of my buddies tomorrow.

Took one of my buddies out to give it another go looking for Walter. Was joking with him on the way out and said if we didn't catch any fish he was bad luck. Well....we didn't have to worry as there was a decent chop and the fish were piled up again. 12 fish took the ride in just a little over 2 hrs. 2 doubles and even a triple where we landed multiple fish in the same swipe of the net made it a short night. Its been a fantastic couple weeks πŸ˜€. Even had time to come home and get the grass knocked down again. Good luck out there!

Nice catch CS! Hopefully i can find them saturday morning or sunday afternoon! I need to try the new electric filet knife out on some eyes. Worked great on gills, crappie and perch during ice time.

Thanks for the pats on the back everyone. Looks like all those calendars I've been keeping for years are finally paying off.

Gotta brag to someone BTDT. Might as well be to a bunch of other fine fishermen πŸ˜€.

Good luck to all of you getting out his weekend. Forecast for the weekend looks great for boating some fish.

One of the guys I work with is an avid fisherman, and he couldn't take the nightly texts either. Swirling wind when we got there made me think it wasn't gonna happen today, but it finally got straightend out and we managed to get a few. Had about 45 really good minutes, but picked away at them the rest of the time. Missed a lot of fish. More good times with good friends πŸ‘.
