|This hefty mirror carp is one of 15 fish landed this morning|
in three hours of fishing. July fishing has been hot so far.
July has just continued where June left off. I've already gotten over 30 carp in July up into the high teens, and it is only July 4. In my desire to get away from the holiday crowds and fish off the beaten path, I tried an unlikely spot yesterday and today for this time of year. And, I hit it big in this location. In the last two days I landed 24 carp, real good numbers for July. I have been fishing just short sessions of 2-3 hours each day. All the action has been on hair rigged maize.
The water has been higher than normal and cooler than normal this summer, and I am guessing that has kept the fish more active, although the high water has been difficult to deal with at times.
All in all, this is shaping up to be an epic year for me, maybe the best of all time.
