The third time is the charm
We returned to Central Park, Sunday evening
for some more carp fishing. The park is filled
with tourist until about 6:00 pm, then people
start to pack up and leave. This is the time to
look for feeding carp.
Dennis arrived earlier than I did so he had already
wet his line by the time I arrived. We used spey
casting technique to reach carp feeding on the
surface. There is little room for back casting here.
We cast from this rock. The water is muddy
looking and algae is starting to grow but this
lake has some of the largest carp in the city.
In the few days spent fishing at this part of the
lake, we have caught a number of double digit
carp. They are longer and thicker than the carp
we normally see.
