Afternoon/Dusk bite was definitely more productive. 5 on 6 bites yesterday (9.3-18.3 LB), with the bite starting slow, but consistent, and getting more vigorous towards dusk. All bites were on my Corn/Pineapple Hominy baits. I had a Pop-Up Maize out for a while, but it never got hit. Also got a small channel cat on the Corn/Hominy bait.

Ugh. Rough time of year. Drove down to Janesville to fish The Rock before dawn. No flatheads, just three small channels. Set Carp baits after dawn, no bites. Then I drove back up to Madison and tried the Tenney Lagoon between 10 and 12. No bites there either. With the cold weather setting in (sort of) I'm wondering if they might be reverting back to the Dawn/Dusk bite that I've been seeing in the Spring and Fall. Might try to fish the evening hours tomorrow or Friday. See what happens. Anybody seeing good catches on the Rock/Yahara systems of late?

Walleye master, maybe start by taking a pic of the rig you used.  Remember the rig is only a part of it, still gotta get the bait in front of a fish who's eating!

Carp are on fire at the petenwell dam. The ones on the bottom are feeding not the ones on top.

Hey Madison anglers.

I'm new to fishing in this area and I'm wondering what some more experienced folks are thinking about this time of year. Its getting seriously fall-like about now. Do the fish here typically bite on the same baits year round or is there a certain type that works better as the weather cools? 

I've been fishing bottom rigs with either packbait or sweet/fake corn all summer semi randomly. Not sure what would make me choose one over the other apart from not having ingredients on hand. Haven't even tried any boiled baits yet.

Out of curiosity, can anyone post a link/picture a of how they set up a carp rig with jello or pack baits ?

Thanks!

For me it depends on the body of water. I’ve got small ponds where you can catch more mirrors then commons. Most quality size fish are about 100:1 commons to mirrors. I guess I’ll be hitting Redstone this fall for some carp. Do they get any bigger in there??

Mirrored carp is a gaen trait.  Some believe it's a malfunction, others believe it is rear and is uncommon but not unheard of.  Europe has had carp species longer that most carp species in the U.S., we do have local carp species, but most were imported.  They are a beautiful fish and the scales are larger than regular carp.  The Oriental counties tried breading programs for mirrored carp, but came up with nothing that was sustainable.  End of what I believe on them.
