Hey All. Set up at Cherokee Park to try the Marsh for Carp. First time out there for Carp. Was using tried and true baits, rigs and techniques. Only two bites in 3.5 hours. Both close to sunset. Caught them both (roughly 9 LB each), but was expecting much more activity. Seems a really good area for Carp. Was fishing a mix of particles (sweet corn and sweet corn cured with a dye/attractant) and boilies/packbait. Both hits came on the boilies/packbait rigs. Tried to show them a mix of Spring/Summer baits. Anybody seeing good Carp activity up there? Curious as to what I might be doing wrong. Guess next time I'll bring a Cat rig, too. I didn't have time to re-rig and go get baits.
As I was about to start packing up, a rather friendly little raccoon wandered into my site. In case anybody is wondering, his name is Bandit.
