So far, it's a BIG BLANK for me in the new year. I tried a few times a couple of weeks back in multiple spots when we were having warm weather and got nothing. Now, with the current cold snap, everything is iced over, even running water. About a week ago I checked out one of my winter spots just prior to the big freeze. Unfortunately, there was about a half an inch of thin and clear ice which made the place unfishable. To my surprise when I looked at the ice I could see carp swimming around under the ice. Talk about a tease! The one good thing about the ice in most places is that it is not that thick at this point. In other years, the ice was well over a foot thick by now. On most ponds, the ice thickness ranges from 2-5 inches. That should melt very fast once we get a warm up. So, nothing doing on the carp scene at this point, but I expect things will change very quickly once the weather warms and the ice begins to melt.
