|Here's a hefty 14 lb. common|
that was landed this morning.
|This is one of 6 mirrors landed|
after dark tonight in 43
What really surprised me about today was how active the fish were after dark. It was a cold 43 degrees where I was fishing tonight, yet the fish were hitting. In two hours I managed to bank 6 mirrors. They were especially keying on a combo bait of maize and a white, artificial corn combo fished on the hair rig. That white ESP artificial corn has been a hot producer for me all fall, and it continues to work.
I will continue with my carp fishing until the ice comes. If this warmer than usual weather continues, I suspect the carp fishing will remain good until the end of December just like it was last year. As the weather cools into December, expect the daytime (especially late afternoon) to produce the best while the cold night fishing will gradually shut off.
At this point I need 125 carp from now till the end of the year to reach the 1,000 mark for 2016. It is possible, but I will have to find a hotspot or two to make it happen.
