|This good looking mirror was landed|
in one of my winter spots.
Carp tend to do this in winter. They will bunch up for the winter and congregate in one area. It might be a deep spot in a river or a lake. It might be a place where the water is just a bit warmer than the rest of the body of water. These places are hard to find and are generally found by experienced carpers who put in a lot of time and effort. I know of only a few such spots, though I am always on the lookout for more, If you know of a wintering over spot, it can be a place that produces throughout the winter, especially if it is in an ice free location.
Today was a good day for me as I tried one of my winter spots. I ended up with six mirrors. They were all landed on small kernels of pineapple flavored maize fished on the hair rig.
