It was extreme weather for carp fishing the last two days. I still fished and surprisingly, the carp were hitting quite well. I landed a total of 6 carp in two afternoons and they were all mirrors! Today featured the most extreme weather. It was only 25 degrees outside and the wind was blowing like a son of a gun. Wind chills were down in the single numbers. Ice covered most of the area I was fishing except for a bit of open water right in front of me. Of course, that's where the carp were hanging out. Using pineapple flavored Pescaviva flavored sweet corn I landed two nice mirrors and had several other hits. Once close to shore I had to push my net through skim ice to land these fish. As many of you know, I am on a quest to catch carp in open water all winter long. From the numbers of fish I have caught thus far, this has been my most successful winter of fishing ever and I still have a couple of weeks left to fish.
