The carp fishing is off, way off for this time of year. Blame it on this cold March weather. Tuesday's weather brought 2-5 inches of snow to northern RI and it is still on the ground in most of the places I fish. In addition, it brought very cold nights sending our springtime weather in reverse. In fact, I went to fish on Wednesday morning, and the place I tried to fish was completely locked in ice.
The carp are still around, but they, too,have been slowed by the cold and are not feeding as they usually do at this time of year. I have spent a lot of time in the last three days trying a number of places. I landed five carp (see pic of one of them) in that time period, and I would not want to say how many hours I fished for those five fish. So, not much we can do about it but get out and hope that the fish hit. It will warm up eventually!
