Looked at Ye Olde atlas to pinpoint where you live. Fly fishing guru, Dave Whitlock, used to take a couple of weeks each summer and fish for carp in the Unknown Great Lake, Lake St. Clair. He would sight fish like one would fish for bonefish on the tropical flats. So... give the lake a try. Should be others in your area that fish for carp. BTW, welcome!

The Saginaw River holds nice carp. The Kalamazoo River is loaded with carp ( mostly small in my experience - but vast numbers) - but some hogs can be captured below the Allegan Dam....Lastly, Lake Kent in Kensington Metro Park near Detroit also holds some decent carp.

If you can gain access to Miner Lake, near Allegan - there are some giants in there. I believe there is a small public access point, but not too sure.

 

These are the only places that I have fished in Michigan. Hope this helps.

Good Luck.

Yeah i went to kent lake and unfortunately i didn't catch anything but i did Catch 3 boats  so where would be the best spots  in Kensington park 

 

It's been a looong time, but In think the area was called "Turltlehead". One of the local CAG guys held a fish in there.

Theres some nice fish in the rouge. Mostly smaller but I'v caught fish upwards of 15. I also spotted a small mirror recently swimming in the shallows of Quarton Lake along the rouge.  Generally, I catch em on a boilies made of egg, bread flour, and flax meal. This imitates the bread that people throw in for the ducks. I can usually get on a fish or two within a few hours.
