Fishing spawning carp

Took out David and Mike Evnas for a guided carping trip. When we got to our spot, spawning carp swirling all around the surface, must have seen a couple hundred over the first few hours.

Though the weather and water conditions were perfect for carp fishing (light rain, stained, warming water), the bite was non existant as long as they we're swirling around the surface.

As the day moved on, the swirls died down and the fishing picked up. We managed 3 carp between 8-16 lbs, all came on boilies set up on hair rigs. Though we chummed a lot of soaked corn, the hook baited corn lines remained untouched, another vary rare occurence.
