|Here's a beefy common that I landed today in|
this beautiful sunny weather. Expect the carp
fishing to perk up when many of the state's ponds
lose their ice this week.
Today I managed to put at least a few fish on the board for February. It was a beautiful afternoon and the fish decided to hit. I got them to take my usual combo bait of sweet corn and a white artificial fished on a hair rig. I was also using a small method ball.
I get the feeling that carp fishing will break open this week in RI with a bout of warmer weather and rain headed our way. Carp tend to come to life at ice out, and I suspect many ponds in the state will lose their ice covering within a few days to a week. Get the carp gear ready. Spring is in the air.
