Being at the Right Place at the Right Time

So much about carp fishing is timing and being at the right place at the right time.
This good looking common was landed right before dark.  That
has been the hottest and most consistent time to fish in the
last week.
I've been fishing a good amount of time in RI since ice out.  Daytime fishing has been outright poor except for that warm day last Friday.  Other than that it has been one big blank for me in the daytime.  Yet, the evenings have been consistently good.  In that last hour of light, from 6:30 until 7:30, I have gotten anywhere from one to four carp a night and have not blanked once. That seems to be the hot period when the fish have been the most active.  Of course, all of this will change once the weather warms up and then daytime fishing should improve.
 While on the subject of timing, one of our CAG members, Daphne Forster, just logged in the first twenty pound carp in our RI CAG Big 3 contest. It is also the first 20 I have heard about that has been landed in this state in 2015.  She landed the  brute this evening right before dark. I'm not surprised as that has been the hot time to fish.  Nice catch!
