Carping in the rain.


June 4 2007 Light rain and 20 degrees, we decided to go carp fishing in the St Lawrence River in Ontario. The decision was a great one, as the fishing was great. We hooked our first one within less than 5 minutes, a small male. As the day progressed, the fish were biting in shifts, where an hour or so would go by without anything happening, then suddenly they would start hitting non stop. We ended up catching a dozen carp between 6 - 25 Lbs, most in the 10 - 15 Lb range, including a couple double headers. The rain seems to make them feed a lot more actively, looks like we'll be planning most carping for rainy days.
