Carp Fishing in The Winter or Spring, it's All Good!

Winter Carp on The South Platte

With all of this warm weather lately there's one thing on everyone's mind....Carp on the Platte! Yes this is a picture from a Carp taken in between snowfalls, no not this year (still waiting to get me one in 2012) but this was taken February 2011 in between snowstorms. 2011 was a fantastic Carp year for me and now with 2012 in my sights, this could be an even better year.

What is it about this weather lately that has gotten everyone all amped up about chasing Golden, is it the fact that no one wants to fight all of that ski traffic on I70, or is it the fact that Carp are slowly becoming one of the top targeted species on Colorado to chase now?

I will let you decide whether it's for you or not....if your idea of fishing close to home on a bright sunny day without crowds, gas money or slow biting trout than Winter carp fishing may be for you!
