Day 310: The Anti-Carp

Some makeshift rod-holders to replace the ones I forgot in the car.

When: Saturday, March 17th, from 5pm to 6:30pm
Where: Lake Nomahegan in Cranford
What: Carp fishing
Weather: Partly cloudy, 57 degrees, SE wind at 7mph
Barometric Pressure: 30.34in and steady
Moon: Waning, two days after the last quarter
Water Conditions: Stained

I'm starting to suspect that it's impossible to catch a carp when Lindsay is with me.

On a brighter note, I met one of my blog readers who has helped me out with a fishing spot in the past. Thanks Matt and it was nice meeting you!

Although I'm pretty sure that "spring" fishing is in full swing, I'm still having trouble getting my first carp since my first go at it on January 2nd. I've been trying to target shallow water in the afternoon on warms days hoping to find them feeding, but I've yet to get one to bite. I guess it would help if I fished for a full day, but I just don't have that kind of time.

In any event, it was great to sit outside on a gorgeous afternoon with Lindsay, even if the fish weren't biting.

I have a feeling they will be tomorrow.

  2. Without a doubt man. It was a pleasure. I'd love to hang sometime and catch a few fish today. I've uncovered a few other spots around here as well. Feel free to shoot me an email at Be good and hope you're still catchin' some fish.
