|Caught this hefty, big gut mirror|
yesterday in the heat.
Another irritating thing going on right now is that the pests are super active. The turtles are onto a bait almost as soon as it hits the water. These include snapping turtles and sun turtles. Right before dark, the horned pout are super active in this heat. And, suckers are on the feed, especially in the Blackstone River. It all takes it toll on carp numbers.
However, I say get out and fish if that's what you want to do. From the reports I am getting, our guys in the RI CAG continue to catch fish in this heat so they are hitting. Good luck if you try.
