|I landed this hefty mirror this|
morning. Numbers are way off
compared to last year. Blame the
cooler and wetter weather.
December is probably the most unpredictable and variable month of the year for carp fishing. The fishing is all dependent on the weather. Warm weather leads to good fishing, cool weather leads to marginal fishing and cold weather and icing shuts it all down. In recent years there have been some fantastic Decembers in which I have caught hundreds of fish (last year) while there have been other cold Decembers where I have struggled to land 10 fish. Most Decembers I have been able to get 25 to 30 fish, and that is putting in a good amount of time. For me, this December seems to be turning out a bit above average, but we'll see what happens the rest of the way. Not looking like a banner end of the year at this point. However, I plan to fish the rest of the month or until severe icing shuts it down.
