I had the kayak out Fri. at GMR and witnessed some strange carp behavior. The river is covered with cottonwood (white cottony substance you see floating in the air this time of year), so as I pull up to a log jam you can see this stuff just packed on the surface in front of the jam. There must have been 8-20 carp devouring huge mouthfulls of the cottony treat. Some probably in the 10+lb range. Was wondering if anyone had ever seen anything like this before? As for the real fish..... the smallies are on their beds! I caught 13 total in about 3hrs. No real hogs but 3 went over 17in. Some would have other smallies follow them in when I was fighting them. Great time to be out now. Good luck all!!
