As Lousy as It Gets
Carp fishing in RI has hit the pits. Yes, it's August, our toughest month to fish for carp, and it's as lousy as it gets. I have been out both in the morning and evening in the last three days. I have landed turtles, horned pout, dace, suckers and catfish, but NO carp. Heck, I haven't even seen any. There have been no fish jumping, no bubble trails and no fish hiding under debris. It's like they have done a complete disappearing act. This does happen in August when water temperatures are at their peak and the carp seem to go into a funk with little activity and little feeding. Rest assured that things will improve, but you will have to wait till late August or September before that happens.
