Shouldering Carp on the flats.
I spent the evening stalking carp at Riverbend Ponds. I witnessed shouldering carp and many mudders. Thinking this would be a nice repeat of some of previous trips I tried an egg pattern, but nope not this time. Eggs were not on the menue. Tonight it was a Merkin style Crab fly. The carp were picky and spoked real easy, but I still had a blast casting to and casting on top of carp all night long. I can honestly say I have mastered the art of putting the fly right on top of them! Oh well its great practice for Michigan and Beaver Island this July.
