First time fishing Jefferson and the Crawfish this morning. Fished Riverfront Park. Started slow but got better. I gotta ask though, what in blazes is wrong with your Carp?! Every one I caught today, without exception, went absolutely ballistic on me. I've been fishing Carp for 8 years now, and I'm used to them fighting well. Especially so this time of year just after spawn. But this was ridiculous. Like there was some chemical leak or something in the water acting as a stimulant. I've never seen the like.Crazy crackhead fish! Made it extra fun, but got annoying after a time cause the darn things would NEVER sit still. Inexhaustible balls of energy.
Anyhow, no bites before dawn but did pick up 3 decent sized Channel Cats and a Drum. Soon as some light was on the water the carp started biting. Ended up with 20 banked. Largest at 11.3 LB. 133.4 LB total. Not a bad morning. Fished 4:00 to maybe 10:30. Bit well on boilies/pack bait real early in the morning, then seemed to favor particles (Corn/Hominy) more as the day progressed.
