mirror just shy of 20 lbs.
I landed a total of 17 carp today. The numbers are only part of the story. I had bigger fish overall than yesterday with numerous fish from the teens to just shy of 20 lbs. In addition, I landed a massive wild goldfish, a gorgeous gold specimen that went about 5 lbs., off the charts for this kind of fish.
The fish were super active today. I switched to maize because dace and suckers kept picking at the sweetcorn. The carp were right on the maize. On three different casts, I had carp off and running before I was even able to put my rod on the alarm. I'm guessing the carp took the bait on the way down or when it immediately hit the bottom. That type of aggressiveness is rare in carp fishing.
My total for 2 days was 37 carp. Those are the best back to back days I have ever experienced in November. Unbelievable!

barbels and have a straight forward mouth rather than a mouth under its head.
