www.wackerbaits.com ). Pescaviva is a firm sweet corn that holds real well on the hair. It has a subtle sweet corn flavor that lures carp in early spring, late fall and winter. The problem with this bait in the warm months is that pests such as turtles, bluegills and horned pout will pick it apart. Since those cold nights of last week, most of the pests have disappeared. So, I'm back to using and catching with Pescaviva. Note that I use this bait on a hair rigged hook with two or three kernels threaded onto the hair. It is fished ahead of an oatmeal based method ball. Very effective stuff and my go to bait at this time of year.

Last year I noticed a similar pattern. Whenever we would get a real cold spell followed by warming weather, they would start hitting once the warm days hit. Makes sense.....they slow down in the cold and perk up again when it warms up. With warming weather on tap for the next couple of days and a warm and rainy day predicted for Friday, things are looking up. I know what I will be doing for the rest of the week.

There is a new blog in town called Dark Carping. It is a diary type of blog written by Kev Wasliewski, one of the premier carp anglers in RI and a member of the the RI Carp Anglers Group. Kevin is a big proponent of nighttime fishing for carp, and his numbers and sizes of fish that he catches proves just how effective nighttime fishing can be for carp here in RI. I've fished with Kevin quite a bit and I can tell you that he is an innovator and a student of the game, and he has a lot to offer to both beginner and experienced carp anglers. I seem to learn something new every time I fish with him! Check out his blog at http://www.carpteamri.blogspot.com/ if you want to get into the mind of the truly obsessed (his words, not mine!). Good stuff.
