New Carp Stocked
on May 1, 2010!
Massive 16,000 pounds in one day, a 50-year record for
one-day stocking at Indy Lakes – and
probably just about anywhere!
Here’s some info:
Source: Rock River in upper Wisconsin, caught fresh for Indy Lakes in a 2-day timeframe, hauled overnight
with light oxygen and chilled river water.
Commercial Angler in business over 30 years, David
Blair from Beaver Dam, Wisconsin.
Beautiful Golden Carp! Yes, a sane run, we got big, medium and small
and it takes 3 small to make a jumbo!
Scroll down for pictures and videos.
Status on 5/5/10,
4 days later: Fantastic! About 1% loss in the immediate 36 hours and
none since! A 20 and 22 caught the next
day on the Sunday Series, Sunday Series 16 and 17’s hitting the big
fish board, one 16.9 Carp board hit, and the “little ones” are hungry
too…………….The slide was the way to go, easier on the fish and from Rock River to
Indy Lakes in 18 hours!
Status on 6/8/10: Superb. As many of you know, they are tearing
them up! No further
loss, a better load – and bigger load – cannot be found at any paylake we know.
Or, much of any stocked lake for that matter!
Status on 8/20/10:
The Carp Load of a lifetime.
Landing 40-50+ in a good day’s (night) visit is the new normal (for the
good anglers! Missing
40-50 for the rookies). Just
check out our Winners and Anglers pictures for 2010.
To our Front Lake; Lake Le-An-Wa: About
4,800 pounds (3 tanks) of 10-25 pounders
To our Carp
(Back) Lake: About 11,200 total pounds!:
4 tanks, about 6,400 pounds of 10-25 pounders
3 tanks, about 4,800 pounds of 5-10 pounders
Click for videos
of each tank of ~1,600 being unloaded by slide (16,000 total!)
Using the slide
may bang up a few – but still better than digging them out with a hard net,
that bangs them up worse (and 16,000 pounds would take all day!)

Total stocked since 1992: ~101,000 pounds!
Stocked since Lake
Le-An-Wa’s founding in ~1957: who knows but records indicate well north of
300,000 pounds of carp alone!
