Well plan B was a bust also, so we dicided to try plan C. We got back in the truck and took off towards a reservior that was producing earlier in the week for Shane. As we were passing a small res on the way, we saw thousands of carp that appeared to be tailing.Shane jammed on the brakes, pulled off to the side of the highway, and with 5 min we were geared up and running down the bank headed toward the carp. When we got into position, we realized the carp werent tailing, they were taking midges on the surface. There were multiple hundreds of cruising schools of 20 or so carp just swiiming on the surface with their mouths open taking in midges. Well for the next 2 hours, I hooked into just under a dozen carp on dries. WHAT A RUSH!!!! The takes were EPIC. If you haven't ever experienced this words could never do the experience justice. There is a good possibility that I might never stumble onto an evening like this the rest of my life, (I hope that isnt true) but I am glad that I was able to experience it.
Now for the Eye candy :)
In summary, this was probably one mf my most memorable trips that I have ever been on. I feel so blessed to be able to make so many fishing trips and to fish so many areas of the country. We put over 400 miles on the odometer, while ivestigating 3 bodies of water. Thanks Shane, Your the man!
