Had to start the new year off with a few hours of carp fishing ....turned out to be crap fishing .....no hits, runs or errors , but nice to be out fishing ! 


i went to Rennie Park and saw it was all frozen over !  I found a small opening   near the finish line building , about 30' of open water , a little shallow there....


I tried 3 different baits but they didn't like any of themm .It was very busy as people by the dozens walked their dogs , roller skated and strolled by , many saying "happy new  year " 


Everything was closed up as well as the coffee shop . Now....if we can get some colder days , the ice has a good start ......   :Gonefishing:


...a few shots .....that mink is a big guy with a big bushy tail  & looks mean !  Some ice and people strolling & a small open water spot at the building ....

I’m proud of you smerch. Carp fishing New Years day :).  Not a bad Day to be out up until now with the ice/snow. I would’ve been out but roofing got in the way. My dad and I were the only idiot it’s on site today🤔.  I’ll be out next week in the evenings.

I might have done better if I had another 10' of open water there .  It did recede about a foot or so while I fished for 3 hours . My bait was just barely over the drop off & chummed lightly with oat/cream corn/maize/pineapple pack bait.

If I had another 3 feet of open water my bait should reach the bottom of the slope , might have had more luck fishing deeper. I chummed with oat/cream corn/maize/pineapple  pack bait rolled into balls . I tried cheese cloth balls with chopped minnows  for lots of scent ,  cheese bags with cream corn & chopped maize , and using maize on larger hook with yellow marsh-mellow to elevate off bottom an inch or so ....here you can see the edge of the ice ,about 30' from shore ....

Best spot would be the slight current that's there.

Wind was NE , so the south end would be good .

Could you not of used two rods as you were sort of ice fishing 😎

It would be nice to use 2 rods there ....one for carp and another for pike  with the float rod. 


......or take the wife along...... :Gonefishing::Gonefishing:
