So with the 2017 angling season almost near an end, I took some time today to go through my fishing log and reflect on all the Carp I've caught this year. Out of a total of 35 (I don't have a lot of time to get out on the water) I realized I have never caught a single mirror Carp.. not just this year, but in my entire Carp fishing experience. Factoring in my past years of fishing, I've probably caught around 60-75 Carp (I began euro carping only 2 years ago) all of which were commons. Is this abnormal? Shouldn't mirrors be slightly more common? I've seen pictures of them from the Delaware river, my local river, but have yet to catch one to this day. I heard somewhere they make up about 2% of the Carp population on average in most American rivers, so shouldn't I have caught at least one by now? Thanks!
