I actually got out yesterday for two hours (7-9am) at one of the local ponds. It was quite interesting and tough. With all the rain we have had in the last month or so, the water was really high and the carp were tailing along the banks eating the grass that was now submerged.
I couldn't get them to look up so I had to switch from dries (my favorite) to nymphs.
I was using a dubbed Simi-Seal leech in an olive color, and was able to hook into 3 nice ones that averaged around 7-12 lbs each. Not too shabby for a "quicky" trip.
I was forced to throw a good 70+ feet to the fish as they were very spooky. I would guess this was do to the fact that they were feeding in about 15" of water.
Kinda like fishing for the "bones" in Florida.. Fun Fun...
I was using that 4wt you sold me.. Man that is a great carp rod.
