|This good size mirror, landed today, was my only carp in the|
last six days. Persistent cold weather has taken its toll.
I blame the weather for the lousy fishing. At this time of year, dropping water temperatures are not good. A lot of cold rain, cold nighttime temps and cool, windy days, has caused the carp to go into a funk. Additionally, I have not been able to fish many of my April hotspots. Some places are closed off to fishing due to corona virus restrictions. Some of my places in MA and CT are off limits to RI residents. And, high, high water in the Blackstone River due to rains have prevented me from fishing some of my river spots.
Still, I managed to bank 90 carp in April, a bit above average for me in April, so things are not all that gloomy. The key here is to stick with it as carp fishing, like the weather, will change in the warming days ahead.
Good luck if you get out and be safe.
