Carp vs. Work

Every spring, Blackfoot Reservoir lies dormant like a sleeping giant.  It offers up a morsel or two here or there, but it never really shows its true potential until we get a good streak of warm weather to bring the flats to life.  We finally got a good solid warm spell this week and now we are 'all systems go' for the summer.

I can't even begin to tell you what a remarkable fishery this is.  There are flats that will produce dozens of back-to-back cookie cutter 6 to 7-pound carp if you just want to keep a tight line all day and have a blast.  There are other areas, like where I fished today, where you can sight cast to very large carp in barely enough water to cover their backs.

Have a great weekend.
