|This is one of 20 carp landed in|
the last few days. Fishing has really
perked up in this warm and rainy
I have been using winter tactics as described in my previous posts to catch these fish in multiple venues. The bait of choice has been sweet corn on the hair. Two kernels on a short hair seems to do the trick. Sometimes I am using a small method ball, sometimes I'm not. I will put the ball on one sinker, leave it off the other outfit and see what happens.
Many newbies ask when this will end. Fishing should continue to be worthwhile, sometimes very good, until the ice arrives. I have no timetable for ending. If this is an ice free winter, I will fish for them all winter. Realize that the cold months can be very productive. Last year, for instance, I landed a whopping 292 carp in just the month of December. That is what warm weather can produce.
