Fish the Shady Spots

Toss your offering under the shade of a tree.
Yesterday I landed my 200th carp of the 2013 season.  It was caught in the shade under an overhanging tree.  These are the types of spots I have been targeting in recent weeks, and I have been steadily catching good numbers of fish.  You see, carp have moved into a summer pattern.  With the warming waters they seek the coolness of the shade on a warm and sunny day. They are creatures of comfort.  In the cold spring, they love to sit and sun themselves in a sunny spot, but as soon as the water and weather  turn warm, they are heading for the shade.
So, if you are looking for the best locations to catch them, think shady spots or low light.  These places include under a shady tree, along a bank shaded by a hill in back of the shore or even under a bridge.  Rainy days have also been very good.  And, certainly low light times such as evening, early mornings and even nighttime produces well at this time of year.
