Default Utah lake

Carp are biting. I took some friends from our archery club. It was their first time and needless to say they are getting bows tomorrow.

They are going good. If your going to utah lake the water is very low. The fish are in about a knee high deep water or less. You will need a very shallow running boat. Not sure if electric trolling motor would work or not.

Dang, that looks like fun. You guys did great out there.

How much does a decent bow fishing setup cost?

The fun times of Utah Lake and the carp spawn.

I used to go down when the fields were flooded with my old recurve and cedar shaft arrows. I couldn't tell you how many carp I disposed of or how many of those old cedar shaft arrows I destroyed but it sure was fun.

I was hunting the carp in about 6" of water and catch them when they were in a group. I'd see how many I could hit at one time. Now the area that I used to hunt has a road running right through it.

I'm just wondering if it's legal to take a .223 or SKS out there and blast them with that?

No. Sounds like a lot of fun though.

You may use a variety of techniques—including angling, traps, archery, dipnets, cast nets, liftnets, seines, crossbow, a handheld spear from above the surface of the water, or underwater spearfishing—to take carp in any water during its open fishing season.
