Joe,
Thanks for the reports and pictures. They make my days behind my desk go by faster.

I hit a few out in the pungo this AM on the outside of Plymouth beach, ~26" fish no sleighrides. Some surface activity. Bait was mostly silversides.

Ok- so here's my report- though a bit late. I caught this fish back in July off of Aurora on Cayuga Lake. I had been reading about Quentin's carp and was targeting them primarily. Catching these bass kept me in the game. One bass I actually saw as I was paddling along. As I coasted past I quickly put down the paddle (placed into empty front seat) grabbed the rod and cast back to the fish which I could no longer see. Let the fly sink- strip - strip- strip- and wow he's on!

Nice smallie! I'll take that as "bycatch" any day! So . . . did you get a carp yet while fishing from the yak? Just wondering how long the battle lasted :devil: .

Unfortunately have not hooked up with a carp yet. The lake where I am fishing is fairly dark weedy bottom so I often do not see the fish until they are quite close. Usually they seem to see me about the same time. I haven't focussed on them much as of late and I gather they do require a fair amount of persistence. I have a friend who has been seeing them mudding in a local river so hope to give them a shot at some point. I'm not giving up and look forward to gleaning additional insights into the ways of the carp from you Quentin.
