In another thread, some of you mentioned that you bowfish at Alum Creek sometimes. I was just wondering what the carp population is like in there and what size fish you typically see/shoot in Alum. Fished it once last year (rod and reel, I don't bowfish) with some success and was wondering how much of a focus should be put on it next year.

Alum has a good population of them. I will have to show you on a map where to go. Buckeye and Hoover have a good populations of carp and gar, with large Buffalo suckers at Hoover. I do have a place that no body thinks about to get large carp. I'll show you , because when you come to go to school you will be able to fish there easily. ;)

Hoover was another lake I was wondering about, mostly because those two are pretty close to me. Buckeye and Alum are the only two lakes in central Ohio where I've fished for carp. I'd definately agree that Buckeye is a great lake for carp, though. And I'm always open to hot spots for carp :) .

cw, we will have to hook up on my days off and break out some lake maps and I will help you out on locating some fish. I give you areas I see the fish while I'm out bowfishing.;)

alum creek(the actual creek) is full of carp.i used to live right next to it and taking up to 30 fish was a piece of cake.water is real shallow/crystal clear so camo and little movement is a must.but it is not much of a challenge
