Day 200: A Mediocre Milestone



Carp stuff.


When: Monday, November 28th, from 5pm to 5:30pm
Where: Milton Lake
What: Carp fishing
Weather: Warm again, near 70 degrees, SW wind at 6mph
Barometric: 30.09in and steady
Moon: Waxing, 4 days after new
Water Conditions: Stained

Never say never.

I had put away the carp rods and swore off carp fishing for the year, however, the unseasonably warm weather made me think they might be biting. And they were.....

Kind of.

I headed to Milton Lake after work and set out the chum in the appropriate manner. I could see a few carp feeding, so I was semi-optimistic.

Upon setting my line in the water, I immediately had a run-off. As I went to set the hook, I could see the big fish make a wake and swim off, but without my hook in its mouth. That was okay though, because after such quick action, I was sure to get another chance.

Wrong.

I did indeed get another pick-up on the next cast, but that didn't connect either and was all the action I had for the day.

Oh well.

I would normally be a little bummed, but work is going pretty well right now, I have a ton of time off over the next few weeks and will actually get to spend some time with Lindsay and I've been fishing for 200 days in a row.

Ain't life grand.
