|The big numbers this week|
have been a mix of commons
and mirrors. Here is a double
landed this morning.
My all time record numbers-wise is 749 fish for the year and that happened last year. With a little luck and going on the pace I am on, I might even reach that by the end of October. And, I have two full months to go. Years ago I would have told you 800 carp on the year would have been humanly impossible for me, but that number is reachable with a good November and December.
|This good looking common is number 700 on the year.|
At this time of year I fish saltwater more than freshwater. The numbers are stacking up with a minimum amount of effort as I am putting in about 3 hours a morning.
The top bait for me has been sweet corn on the hair along with an oatmeal based method ball packed around the sinker up ahead of the bait. I am using no flavoring, a trend that I have continued with most of the year.
