Hello fellow carpers! I've been extremely exited for a session I'll be doing next weekend, but just a bit curious as to where I should go. The place I normally fish has access to the main portion of the delaware river, with a bay/cove and a small "creek" connecting the two. The first image I attached has a satellite view of the location, and the 3 spots I'm thinking about fishing. I normally fish in the spot marked "C" in the back cove, because it has almost no current, and a drop off down to about 10 feet off the point. My only concern is that there will be less fish in the cove, because they would have to swim out of their way and all the way back into the bay from the main river, and less fish would end up there. They would have to "exit" the highway that is the flow of the main river. Spot "B" is OK, but an incredible amount of snags and current make it virtually unfishable. Spot "A" has a mild current, and otherwise is OK except that is completely lacking any features whatsoever - it's just a flat sand bed about 5' deep. Any thoughts?
This year has been my first time fishig large tidal rivers and I'm getting quite annoyed with the results. I've tried pretty much everything I know how but nothing seems to fix my problem. I'll use my latest attempt at a session as an example: I had found a nice swim on the Delaware river, and prebaited the spot for a week in advance. When I showed up to fish, the water looked fine. I casted out and it wasn't more than 15 minutes until all 3 of my rods were snagged. Now I don't know if it's because of the current or the spot itself... I'm using a Cygnet Grand Sniper rod Pod, angled as high as it will go. 3 Sonik s3 3.5 pound test curve 12' rods, with 3 Wychwood Exorcist big Pit reels spoiled with 30lb power pro braid along with 5oz Korda grippa leads. This should eliminate any current problems, yet my mainline keeps being dragged either by current or by floating debris. can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? thanks!
