Trip Report - 8/27 - Flowers in the Garden of Eatin'

Somewhere I saw the tail of a feeding carp described as a big brown flower bobbing on the surface of the water. And yeah, it does look like that sometimes.

I saw some of those big brown flowers today, but they weren't bobbing on the surface. The carp here have transitioned to what I assume is their late summer pattern. They have come off of the flats and are cruising in deeper, and I assume more comfortable, water a few feet off the lake banks. Managed to pick off a few of these dudes as they eased along the bank. So no tailing fish anywhere, but I did find a couple of crawlers like the guy in the top pic below, whom I spooked with some skillful crap casting. The other one turned out to be a mirror.
















So now I know. When the carp leave the flats, start searching the banks. Last year when the carp disappeared from the usual places, I just shrugged my shoulders and assumed they left for the deepest parts of the lake in search of cooler water. Idiot.

Never landed on carp on the fly, is it any different than a big bass?

McTage said...

That is a sweet looking mirror. Man, it must feel good to figure out that new pattern. Like the carp gods just gifted you another season!

Ty said...

Thanks John. And yeah, it was a pretty sweet day.

Bill, if you're talking largemouth, then yeah, it's quite a bit different. A big carp will remind you more of a striped bass or hybrid than of a largemouth or even a smallie.

Yeah McTage, that mirror was a pretty fish. Feels great to dial that pattern in. Learned alot about my carp water these past few weeks.

Nicely done. They can run but they can't hide. I imagine they put up a nice fight too. Tight lines.

Ty said...

Definitely put up a good fight Magee. Thanks for stopping by!
