Winter carp success in MI!

I've been pretty inactive on the forum this past winter as I usually am every winter, but I thought I'd share some picture from my last session out. I've never fished for carp in February here in Michigan but since it was around 40 degrees this past Sunday I decided to get out and try to catch a carp or two.

When I showed up to the spot I wasn't to confident I'd catch because of the huge ice piles that had built up from the wind blowing in ice chunks off the main lake, but Kyle and I decided to fish anyway. We had to set up our rods on top of all the ice because the shoreline was non existent anymore. Any way I did end up catching 5 fish up to 21lbs which I was extremely happy to just be catching some fish as spring is still some time away up here. So here are the pictures, I though the ice and stuff made for some cool photos!

The rods on top of all the ice!

Excellent fishing and photo's - stunning landscapes and some real nice carp captures ! Even Iceberg don't seem to stop you getting out there and putting some beauties on the bank - well done ! :swimminfish:

40s?? Heat wave for up north. I'm surprised you didn't swim along with the fish.

I was born an raised in Ohio. I remember a Saturday in Feb. when the temp hit 55. Skipped Roy, Gene and the Lone Ranger and played outside for a while.

Oh yes definite heat wave, it's been absolutely frigid here this February!
