Alum on 6/18

  1. Hi there!
    Went to alum today and then to Hoover. Carps were feeding like creazy, especially on hoover,
    here east side of the bridge in that shallow muddy bay. Water was just boiling there!

    We saw not bubles, but whole volcanos in water. But they were not biting! I wonder why? Maybe thereis too much mud there and corn sinks in it and theycannot seeit? Should we switch to corn with styro on a hair or something else? We ended up with one maybe 5 pounder. We let him go after the dining experience last week:)

    how much weight were you using. In my new swim I stepped down to 3/4oz to keep if from sinking in the algae mats. I was having problems with my bait coming off the hair due to the force of the impact. Use just enough bouyant material to make the corn settle slowly, and just enough weight to hold the bottom. You will still get a bolt effect with this setup, but the hook might not lock in the mouth of the fish until you pick up the rod.

    But what do I know? I lost 4 fish in a row this morning and the only fish that made it to the bank and it was a catfish.
