I was able to hit the water for a while this morning. The beautiful weather had me thinking the White Suckers should be snapping by now. About 30 seconds into my first cast the rod doubled in the bankstick and a heavy fish was hooked. Not a White Sucker, that's for sure. After a strong fight in heavy current it revealed itself to be a Carp! On March 8th.... This is by far the earliest I've caught a Carp before.
A half hour or so went by with no bites. Then after casting closer to the log jam behind me, the rod tip started to dance again. And again, another heavy fish hooked, this one felt even heavier than the first. Lo and behold, it was another Carp. This one being a fat female full of eggs.
Then came a dry spell. No bites for about two hours. Then I caught the only White Sucker of the day, but it was the largest I've caught for quite some time. A nice way to end the day.
and yes, I promise that is me behind all those fish.
Spring is here early guys so get out and enjoy it!
