Just as I have been saying all along, this is the time to fish in the evening and nighttime. Big carp are on the feed right now.
The RI CAG group held an informal get together this week at one of our hotpsots. It was an evening/nighttime event for members only. Our group frequently holds these events for members along with publicized fish-ins throughout the year that are open to the public. Anyone who joins the CAG (http://www.carpanglersgroup.com/ ) automatically becomes a member of the RI Carpers. Membership does have its privileges!
On this evening our group landed two commons over twenty pounds along with several more big fish in the teens. The best action occurred after dark. One of our new members, Nick Newton, landed a PB (personal best) of 21 lbs. Nick is a beginner who joined our group earlier in the summer. He has fished very hard all summer, landed quite a few smaller fish, made contacts with some of our experienced members and finally got the fish he was looking for. A twenty pound carp is very large by RI standards. Congratulations Nick!
