Potter's Lake Resources

2019 Potter Lake Carp-Out

Primary Purpose

The primary purpose of the Protection and Rehabilitation district is to improve Potter Lake. One simple way to accomplish this is to sponsor a Carp-out. It has been a number of years since we last had a Carp-out. Carp are one of the most destructive fish, and if left unchecked, can wreak havoc on a lake.

Carp Tags
Special Bounty

To help protect our lake, there will be a Carp-out the weekend of June 1st, 2019. The District has decided to pay a $1 bounty for Carp over 6 inches in length during the Carp-out weekend. Volunteers will be at the public launch from 8am – 5pm on Saturday June 2nd and Sunday June 3rd. Upon check-out we will pay you a $1 bounty and have a dumpster available to dispose of the fish.

In addition, with the help of the DNR, three carp have been specially tagged. The tags (pictured) will be colored and attached to the backs of the fish just under the dorsal fin. The tags will also have a number on them. The district has placed a $100 bounty on these Carp and the bounty will stay in effect until all three tags have been returned. Once these tags are returned and confirmed, a check for $100 will be sent to anglers. If you catch a tagged Carp, please contact Jon Voss at 262-758-9353 or jon.voss@tr.com. Jon will verify the tag number and process your $100 bounty. Jon will also be available for specially requested check-in/out for night anglers on the Carp-out weekend.

Let’s have a great Carp-out, have fun, make some money, and help protect and improve Potter Lake!

If you are interested in volunteering (check-in/out) for the Carp-out, please contact Jon.
