So.........I have a spot on the lake that consistently produces for me regardless of the weather, except when its frozen. I do see less surface activity right after heavy rain, and fewer catches when the clear lake becomes chocolate, but, at least to me they seem less affected by weather than crappie or bass.........thoughts all? Caught these two last night ( and lost a third at the shore-snapped thew line) after extreme rains the previous 2 days which turned it into chocolate.....(ok maybe latte ).....maybe a post-spawn female on the larger one?........

Happiness is: 1. Spending time with the grandsons before school takes up a lot of their time plus their school sports. 2. Watching them react to the twitching rod tip and a buzzing alarm. 3. Watching them listen how to play the fish and get it to the net. 4. Hearing them say that they want to fish again this Friday after school. What more could a grandfather want? I had to help Brody as a 12 ft. Euro rod is a bit for him to handle. Brody got the second fish, a common, but lost it. The score for the day was: Me- common; Cooper- Buffalo; Brody- Buffalo. I spodded with raspberry cracked corn and discovered that I left the rubber rice packbait at home. Just before we left, I remembered that I had put a bucket of mixed grits and creamed corn in the van but it was up front and not with the rest of the carping gear. Brody commented that we didn't need it! Hookbait was canned sweetcorn soaked in raspberry flavoring. When I spodded, I kept it in a small space and I think that it kept the carp close to the hookbaits. I also baited one rod at first with a CC Moore Live Action boilie; when I reeled in the line it was gone. Turtle? First picture is Cooper's buff and the other is Brody's buff. You can say that is their first buff and their PB buff. Edit: We were going to wait a while so Brody could get a fish before we left. I was planning on leaving about 11:30. At 11:20, Brody got the run! Sounds like needmotime2fish as he always waits until the last minute.
