|Here's a decent 10 lber. that I landed a few days|
ago. Carp fishing has gotten more consistent in
this nice spring weather.
Everything is looking up in this beautiful spring weather.
Big news that will affect carp fishermen is that Opening Day of trout fishing will come early this year with a "soft opening" happening on Wednesday, April 7. This will open up all bodies of water in the state. To those who don't know, some of the best carp fishing venues in the state such as Olney Pond (Lincoln Woods), Lake Tiogue and the Blackstone River have all been closed since March 1 because they are trout stocked waters. They will open up on April 7. This will give carp fishermen in the state more options.
In the last week, carp fishing has gotten more consistent for me and other members of the RI Carp Anglers. Many are reporting good catches of fish in this warming weather. There's been nothing real big, but I and others have been catching good numbers of fish up into the low teens. Biggest I have gotten this week has been 13 lbs. Nothing wrong with that! Sweet corn or sweet corn in combo with artificial corn has been the hot bait.
