Charlie has captured three nice carp in his last two outings and as I am writing this he is currently on Rock Creek searching a new stretch of water we discovered today.
The thing I like about what Charlie does is he makes observations and mental notes not only to use in his future outings, but also to share with others.
Here are Charlie's most recent observations.
1. The big ones lead and alert. The followers are less alert and often feeding. So go for the back of pack.
2. If they are cruising at a pace don't waste time.
3. If they are stationary they are looking for suspended food, so throw them your favorite worm pattern.
4. If their nose is down, sucking and moving slowly throw your crawdad or something found in sand/gravel.
5. The really big ones are almost untouchable, they know your presence early and move to far side out of sight and reach.
