Winding down. Maybe.

Northwest Georgia received a significant amount of rain this weekend, around 2 inches by some counts.

Multi-day rain events around here often bring the carp up into the shallows.  No news there, of course. That happens in a lot of places, and not just with carp.  The prevailing theory seems to be that the rain washes a few more food items into the buffet as it scours the shoreline and drains into the lake.

Rivulets draining from far up the shoreline and into the lake.

I'll buy that, if for no other reason than after heavy rains I often see carp in places where they usually aren't found, nosed up tight to the water's edge and in serious feeding mode.

Like yesterday. The carp were on a flat that, for whatever reason, is typically not on their scheduled daily rounds. I have, for example, searched this flat thoroughly over the past couple of weeks, seeing no carp. Not one. Then yesterday, following the deluge, they were there.



And I caught them. Not all of them but enough to count the day as an unexpected late-fall bonanza.

As I landed these fish, I realized that there is a good chance that these were my last carp of 2012 and felt, weirdly, a twinge of sadness. If you're not careful you can get sentimental about that sort of thing, as if a December carp is somehow more significant than, say, a February carp.

Still, I took a few extra seconds to admire these fish. They may or may not be my final carp of 2012, but I couldn't overcome the urge to savor them just a bit.

DFrasier said...

Nice work Ty. Great pics and beautiful fish. That said, you might have to take the WHOLE month of January off?? Must be rough.

Brent said...

Good stuff Ty. Keep it up.

Gregg said...

Ty,

So do you really have a true down time? I mean for months at a time as i may. I realize you have snow and cold but, you it seems you could find carp most otherwise. In any case, good job, glad for you.

Ty said...

Thanks gents. Appreciate the comments.

The plan is to hit it hard in January and see what I can come up with. I definitely don't have the down time that you Yankees, um, I mean Westerners, have out there. Even in the dead of winter we'll get a few warm sunny days down here.

First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a
quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to know how you center yourself
and clear your head before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my
thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just
seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just
trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
or hints? Appreciate it!
