|The catches tonight included this mirror double. Tonight's fish|
were aggressive and charged up.
I got home late from commitments today and had a couple of hours to get out after supper. So, I fished locally in one of my"small" spring spots that I rarely fish at this time of year. I found lots of carp moving around. Some were grubbing on the bottom, some were moving very close to the shore in small groups. In all there was lots of activity, and that usually spells decent action. I landed four mirror carp and lost another in a short period of time while fishing with maize on the hair rig (no method ball). All the takes were screamers, and these fish were actually ripping drag from my Okuma Avenger reel that was spooled with 15 lb. test mono. It was like these fish were on steroids.
