It's that time of the year. When the weather warms, the carp fishing seems to warm up also. Today's beautiful weather wiped out any ice that remained on the places I was fishing. Shallow spots can warm up quickly on a day like today and that seems to get the carp more active. They were hitting today as I landed two mirrors and a common on hair rigged sweet corn. No, it was not setting the world on fire, but any carp I can catch in December is really a bonus so I was quite happy with three fish (see pics on right and left side of two of today's fish).
Check out the weather for the next few days. With above average temps coming, it looks like favorable conditions for carp action here in RI. They should be hitting.
