As I write this it is snowing outside and the temperature is in the thirties. The last few days have only been in the low forties with nighttime temperatures dipping down in the twenties. This sudden drop in temperatures and cold spell have really affected the carp fishing as it has slowed to a crawl. I've gotten only 1 fish in the last two outings with no other hits. There has also been no activity with no fish jumping and no bubble trails. Rest assured, though, the season is far from over. The weather forecast calls for temperatures to rebound next week into the fifties and sixties by day. That should perk up the fishing. At this time of year, a warm spell following cold weather usually lights up the fishing. Hopefully, it will happen that way next week and I can get back on track.
