Steve and I arrived on Beaver Island last week. We were actually a week late, deciding it best to cancel out because it was still cold with ice floating around.
Well so far, Mother Nature threw the summer switch because it has been absolutely perfect summer weather and the carp have responded well. We have great fishing and things should only get better, that is until we get a storm and the lake water mixes back to cold.
Below is the first Beaver Island carp of the year and what a way to start than a thirty-some pound fish.
