Last Session of 2018

I had the day off on Monday, so I went carp fishing. Here are a few of the pictures.

It wasn't my best day of fall fishing by a long margin, but it was successful. Catching is better than just fishing any and all days of the year.

Small Fish Pics

There was an energetic discussion recently about big fish pictures attributed to specific vendors or products.

That got me thinking. If a product catches a small fish, maybe we should attribute the product for those too.

Early Evening Bite

I've noticed carp feed more than normal just before sunset.

This fish was caught on the hottest, most humid day of the summer. Temperatures were in the mid-90's with high humidity and no shade.

But the fishing made it worthwhile.

Hooked on Carp Fishing

Here's a good picture demonstrating the goal for holding a carp. Remember to use a landing mat and minimize the time the fish spends out of the water.

Urban Carp

I like to fish small urban rivers. There are many great fish to be caught in unsuspecting locations.

First Ghostie Carp / Koi

First of all, you are probably wondering about ghost carp and what makes them "ghostly".

Here's an explanation from Farnham Angling Society:

Ghost carp are a hybrid and usually result from breeding mirror carp or common carp with Ogon Koi.

I can now check Ghostie off my list.

First Fall Session

Summer is over and the weather is turning cooler in Michigan. With highs in the upper 60's yesterday it was perfect fishing weather for me.

I arrived early and fished until mid-afternoon. Here are some of the pictures:

New Fishing Spot

I tried a new fishing spot this afternoon and it worked out well.

Here are some pictures, but there were many more fish caught.

I ended with more than 10 fish. I actually lost count.
