A fish at last.

IMGP0710Not the best picture of me, but at least the carp is a handsome fellow, don’t you agree? I really must smile or get with the somber carp anglers look?

It finally came at the end of a prolonged baiting campaign over two weeks, resulting in one lost carp and this little fellow. While a short fish, it really was fat, easy a double around 12lb. I’m really pleased I finally managed a fish from the river, but really am itching to get back to the lake, and see how the weed it. A friend told me the place had an algae bloom, so that might have killed off some of the weed by blocking the sun-light from the water? So next week I’m going back for a look around. I’ll take a maker rod, and bait, if the weed is better I’ll be back for the rest of the season. A REALLY BIG carp would help me get back only feet so to speak. The lake has always been a “Holy Grail” for me so difficult have I found the fishing. Only time will tell now, I’ll keep you posted as I’m visiting some time today for a look around.
