The picture is me standing on the hump in the middle of barr lake. At full pool the hump is 21 feet deep at the top. My feet were bairly under water.
Got a few nice carp for my buddies garden fertilizer but nothing else.

Wow that is low, seems to be the rule this year rather than the exception. Nice fertilizer. I am sure they put up a fine fight.

Curtis it's not as low as your picture but it can't be more than about 5 feet from there.

Yes. Bow and arrow. I had never tried it before. My buddy thought the fishing may be a little slow so he brought his set up out with us. They were every bit of 25 to 30lb fish. My buddy goes out in the fall and gets a few and buries them in his garden then tills them in next spring. I guess they make good fertilizer. Anyhow the bow was an older one but it was a pretty fun time pulling them in by hand. That lake probably has 1k plus carp and most of them are huge.

Watch out Goose! Those carp will kill your roses. You got to let them age for quite awhile.
