The weather and fishing for the first week back to Beaver Island has been ok to good. We’ve had some sun that was accompanied by good fishing but for the most part we’ve had clouds, making visibility really tough.
The water is up about another foot from last year, so there’s flooded vegetation above your wader belt, It should make for another interesting season. We’ve spotted some barrel sized carp this year, cannot wait for someone to land one.
The pictures below are the three guides heading to the island on the Emerald Isle, then Austin’s first carp of the year, then my first and then the first customer caught carp of the season.
