Second CAG Record Mirror in Two Days!

Hold the record books.  I landed yet another RI CAG record mirror today.  This fish topped the scales at 27 lbs., 2 oz.  It surpasses the 25 lb., 12 oz mirror that I caught just two days ago.  I am on a wicked hot streak this week landing 8 mirrors in the twenties (20-27 lbs.) in the last three days alone along with a bunch of teen size mirrors and commons. In RI a twenty pound mirror is considered huge.  Just a few years ago the RI CAG record stood at 21 lbs. for years.  This fish was landed on a plastic cut up worm pop-up along with a lone kernel of sweet corn fished ahead of an oatmeal based method ball that was flavored with sweet feed.  The pop-up/sweet corn combo has been red HOT this week and has outfished anything else I have tried.
I suspect the fish are in a prespawn feeding pattern and some real hogs should fall in the next few weeks.  You are seeing just the beginning of some of the best carp fishing of the year.
