Perfect Weather and Great Fishing

Beaver Island has been blessed with several days of mellow wind, something we don’t see very often. If the carp are spooky, flat calm conditions can be a real curse. Most often with flat water the carp either jump when the fly hits the water or they shy away after seeing the line shadow.

I’m happy to say spooky has not been the case the past several days. In fact, by carp standards, some of them have been downright aggressive. We’ve had many flip around for a fly while on a fast cruise, some have eagerly turned toward a fly hitting the water and I even had one take on the surface after my fly hung on a clump of grass — that was a first for me. beaver island carp fishinglake michigan carp fishingcarp on the fly
