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?........

Finally got a break in the weather, though the bite is slow.......earlier this week caught a nice 6-14lbr on a nice creek run, then today a couple average catfish, and these two!- A beautiful 5-8 mirror, and this 11-8 common.......slow fighters but nice sunny day!....all on hair rigs-even the creek catch. Lookin forward to FFF, though still trying to pick my venue......
I hate November. It's when my carp fishing experience comes to an unfortunate pause due to freezing water temperatures. I planned my last session of the year next Thursday and Friday, November 9th and 10th, as the weather recently has been quite warm. I'm aware that the forecast will likely change somewhat, but it's not looking good. A major high pressure system and cold front will move through my area late next week (sunny weather, colder water temps). In my carp fishing experience, the best time to fish is during a warm front and a low pressure system (I've attatched a picture of the weather forecast). The only thing I have going for me is the tides, which should be at slack high at the time of my session. That is when I catch most of my fish from my 'secret' swim. I'm aware that in the cooler months overfeeding the fish is a bad idea, but since it's a tidal river I'm fishing I figure there will be enough carp to mop up the chum. My normal fall baiting routine involves chumming 5 gallons of bait a day, for 5 days. I've reduced that to only 2.5 gallons a day for 3 days, but I've never done sessions this late in the year so I'm not sure if I'm overfeeding them. Does this seem good? Additionally, what water depths should I be fishing this time of year? Thanks so much! -Lizard
