    Did you get any pics?
     
  5. I've always liked Cowan, and usually fish it a few times a year. Just haven't been able to get a carp out of there :confused: . Maybe I fish the wrong places or something.
     
  6. No pics,we could not break 15# so we didn't deserve pics.Heck my biggest was 9#.Brice had a 13#6 I tried to convince him to let me get a shot but he wants the same rules as me.
     
  7. Does the end where the river comes in get lilly pads in the summer? We paddled up there and I was using the paddle and pulling up what looked like lilly roots,like the ones in east Harbor.
     
  8. Lots and lots of lilly pads...covering a large portion of that end of the lake. Mostly on the far side, though (away from the bank access, except for the Dalton Road area).
     
  9. Here are a couple pics of the pads from last summer.

    These were taken standing on the rock pier that juts out into the lake upstream from the island. I know of a few 30's caught out of that lake, as well as many mid to upper 20's. It's a very nice lake to fish if I could just get into some fish.
