|This is one of 16 carp landed in just an hour and a half of|
fishing. The Christmas morning fishing was phenomenal.
So, I decided hit a nearby place on this very mild Christmas morning. I figured I was going out to get some fresh air and exercise and maybe, if I was lucky, I would catch a carp.
Lucky I was as I experienced one of my best late fall/early winter days ever. The action began almost immediately as the carp pounced on the sweet corn almost as soon as it hit the bottom. From that first fish on it was nearly non-stop action. Rarely did I have two outfits in the water as I seemed to be battling a carp, taking off a fish, snapping pics, rebaiting, etc. In a short period of one and a half hours of glorious fishing, I landed 16 carp, maybe the most I have ever gotten in that short a period of time. Included in that take were three doubles.
Yes, I was a good boy and left the hot fishing to get back in more than enough time for the turkey carving, the dinner and the party.
Some Christmas gifts are surprises The carp on this Christmas morning were on of those surprises and one of my best gifts of the day!
