Some of our RI Carpers have been making some impressive catches in the last week. Nick, one of our RI CAG guys, landed a PB 26 lb. mirror last week. Yesterday, he hit the jackpot with another 20 lb. mirror. You can see his photos and read about his exploits on his blog at http://www.southernnewenglandoutdoors.blogspot.com/
I got out today with another RI carper named Tom. By his own admission, Tom doesn't catch a lot of carp, but I can tell you when he catches them, he gets some big ones. Today he out fished me with a beautiful 23 lb. mirror (see photo at left). He followed that up with a couple of high teen mirrors. My biggest today went 20 lbs. (see photo at right).
This has been a week of big carp here in RI. Yes, carp fishing for large fish is hot right now.
