Hey guys !!!! Well, for a week before Bob came down to the private lake, which if you all don't know is 300 acres, the large carp were jumping like salmon on a spawn run. Some giants were also caught, including the over 40. Saturday morning I stepped out of the house at 4:45 am to a very stiff NorthEast wind. I knew then it was trouble. Got to the lake a little before 5 am and saw 5 carp jump. After that, NOTHING for the whole weekend. We didn't get a touch. It was if the whole lake died. Late last night we did see a few bait fish finally move. But it was odd. Nothing was moving around the whole time we were there. We did watch a nice fireworks display right to our left but other than the fact it was GREAT to fish with Bob again, the fishin at the " private" lake was a bust. But I'll probably hit it early this week while the chum is still there ..JEEZE US !!!! You all know my freakin luck.I'll leave it at that............. I'll whine like flathunter a little bit....... DA KING !!!
