Mamaroneck River fishing
The Mamaroneck river passes through this park in Westchester. The egret seems to have a fish
half way down it's throat. There are bass and other panfish in this spot.
It did not seem to be in any distress and continued to hunt while I took these shots.
This was my second visit to this park. On my first trip I found a pod of carp here and
a very long white koi. This time, however, the pod was not there. I did see the koi.
There was another long common carp. I could see these two fish because of their length.
I managed to hook this carp.
He took me into my orange colored backing. His first charge took him almost to the
bridge in my picture. I thought he was actually going to make it; until I begin to use foot work to slow
his progress. I began to take steps back away from the bridge ; no pumping of the rod. I simply
walked in the opposite direction. Sometimes the pumping of the rod causes carp to panic and
A view from the bridge.
