Can't drive very far on ice. Too much snow. Trucks kept getting stuck. Bring shovels if trying to venture out onto ice. No fish in 6 hours Sunday. 4 other trucks in boat launch area. Didn't see anybody catch fish all day. Fish cops out on sleds checking for licences and Sunday beer drinkers.

Best to troll really slow. Use Ford fender (flasher) and trail about 4 feet of 4 lb line. Attach a spinner with a single small trout hook. Add a real trout worm. You should be on trout right off the boat launch.

Cajed1 might want to take another look at the regs there bud it says specifically that bait is allowed at Carson....

Star Star Star Star Star

by Cajed1 on Jul. 28, 2017

That's actually Pegasus lake or Little McLeod lake. Also on IFish. Carson or McLeod has no pike.

Wow

by Travis Z on Jun. 2, 2017

I've been fishing Carson for 8 years and only last year I caught 2 suckers all year and this year caught eight and watched 12 more being caught beside me.There's obviously too many of them and needs to be thinned out some.The fishing wildlife officer was telling people to kill'em and throw away.That would explain why I seen a few in the garbage where I was fishing.

by BiggieB on Jun. 1, 2017

Travis z....dude why would you kill suckers for no reason those are native to almost all alberta water bodies...though they are not a game fish and are classified as a bait fish....they are not an invasive species sir and they actually eat alot of the algae and sediment in the lakes (bottom feeding fish) where as the trout in here are stocked, and cannot reproduce in this lake...please be careful i know you are only trying to help but please research before taking action :(

Star Star Star Star Star

by Cajed1 on May. 31, 2017

The trout are actually the invasive species here, not native and stocked. Suckers have always been in this lake, well befor stocking of trout. Just because you don't like them doesn't mean they don't have a valuable place in the ecosystem. Do some research on the subject you might surprise yourself.

by Travis Z on May. 31, 2017

Caught 2 trout and 8 suckers!! Kill'em and throw them away.They should have some signs out as they're an invasive speci to the lake....

On May 6th there was about 1/2 a foot of free water around the edge, lots of cracks in the ice and and water/rain dimpling. Still looked quite thick (you could stand on it with minor movement).
