I can look at the weather report and tell you that opportunity will come knocking next week. After today's snow and cold weather departs, the warm-up will begin tomorrow. We are looking at a string of four days of temperatures over 50 degrees. More importantly, nighttime lows are supposed to remain way above freezing. Carp will use these warm-ups as an opportunity to feed in the wintertime. I've seen this all play out many times in past years. It can be cold with no activity and a big warm-up suddenly gets the fish in gear and feeding as if it were a spring day. So, next week could possibly be your last good shot to catch a carp in 2012 here in RI. Get out fishing if you can.
