|This good size mirror is one of|
40 carp landed in the last three
days! The carp have been on the
rampage at ice out.
|Wild, hybrid goldfish have also|
been hitting as I have landed two
of these "rare" fish in the
last three days.
The carp I landed were all sizes from small ones to good size fish up near 20 lbs. I got them either on just sweet corn or a combo bait of artificial corn and sweet corn fished on the hair rig. I also used a method ball packed around my sinker. In these three "active" days I saw numerous fish jump and whirl, a sure sign that fish are getting more active.
As a bonus I was also able to land two "rare" wild hybrid goldfish. These fish, which look like commons but with smaller scales and no barbels, were fat as footballs, an indication that they were full of eggs and getting ready to spawn.
I'm guessing the nasty wintry weather predicted for the next two days will likely cool things off. But, if I can get to the water, I plan to fish the nasty weather.
