|This was one of several fish|
landed this evening. It came right
at dark, a productive time this week.
Here are a couple of other facts that you might find useful if you hit the water this weekend. All of my fish except for one has been caught on sweetcorn only. I am fishing this on a hair rig. One fish was landed on a combo of an artificial plus sweetcorn. The most productive time to fish has been late afternoon into darkness. I landed several fish in the dark. Shallow water that warms up fast is producing the best. While I have gotten no big ones yet over twenty pounds, I have heard of fish of 23, 25 and 29 lbs. caught by RI CAG anglers. Those are some very big fish for this early time of the year.
So, it's early March and things are hopping in the carp world here in RI. Beats last year when we were up to our ears in snow along with ice that was measured by the foot. What a difference a year makes!
