|This is one of several carp landed today while using|
a stealthy approach in a "small", shallow location.
Time to go with a stealthy approach. I casted my rods out again, and then put them on my alarms, but this time I sat about ten feet away hidden behind a bush. I couldn't see the fish, but they couldn't see me. That did it. About fifteen minutes later one alarm sounded and I landed a decent size mirror. I even landed a couple of more fish later on taking this stealthy approach.
Carp can be very touchy and skittish, especially on these bluebird sunny days. Sometimes it takes a stealthy approach to score on these days. This is especially true when fishing "small" spots with shallow water where fish tend to hang out close to shore where you might be fishing.
