The season is winding down with about a month and a half of good carp fishing left here in RI. November traditionally offers the last real good full month of carp fishing here in RI. December is always a crap shoot. Sometimes the snow and ice arrive early, shutting down carp fishing in most spots. Sometimes the fishing lasts almost until Christmas like last year. Wintertime fishing can be somewhat productive, but the carp are bunched up and their metabolism slows at that time, making fishing difficult.
