|This was today's hot bait|
|I've been getting 1 to 4 fish a day in this recent hot|
weather. Not hot and heavy but steadily fair.
I have been trying to get out at the cooler times of the day so I have been fishing mostly mornings up until about noontime. I'm getting about 1 to 4 fish an outing, way off from the average of 5 or 6 I had been getting earlier in the month. Still, I am catching so I continue to fish for carp just about every morning.
The hot baits seem to change almost daily. Earlier in the week, a single white, artificial corn fishing on the hair rig did the trick. Today, they wouldn't touch it. The hot bait today that got me 4 fish was a combo bait of a small, pink, artificial corn with a single, small kernel of maize on the hair rig. I haven't been going with a method ball due to the presence of turtles.
I've tried to bait up specific, small areas when I get to the location I fish. If I see a snapping turtle near me, I tend to move. Ah, I will be glad when they leave!
So, they fish are still hitting but we are in a slowdown. Things should improve when we get a shot of cooler and rainy weather.
