We held our Take a Kid Carp Fishing Day yesterday at Brickyard Pd. in Barrington. Well, no kids showed up to fish so my friend and fellow RI CAGer Nick and I decided to fish. The carp were hitting and very active as we landed 6 small commons in about 2 1/2 hours and had a few more hits and misses. We also landed 6 snapping turtles as this place is loaded with these pests. The plentiful carp here really go for freelined doughballs. The fish in this pond are generally small commons with 4-6 lbs. being average.
One highlight for me was that I landed my 300th carp for 2011 (see pic).
