|The first fish of the|
day turned out to be a
double of a mirror
and a common.
I landed a whopping 14 carp. The haul included 11 mirrors and 3 commons. While most of these fish went 4-8 lbs., I had three fish over ten pounds including a good size mirror that tipped the scales at 17 lbs. I even had a double as the first fish of the day turned out to be two fish, a mirror and a common, that hit at the same time on the two outfits I was using. The fish were all caught in open, ice free water, and all the fish fell for a combination of one kernel of maize and one kernel of sweet corn fished on the hair rig. In addition, I used an oatmeal based method ball up ahead of my hair rig.

17 lb. mirror. Three fish out of the 14 landed today
weighed more than ten pounds.
