Wallflowers

It has been a really really really good pre-spawn for me this year.  My best ever actually, but I am getting word of early spawning all over the Denver Metro area.  As your waters phase in and out of spawning season across the country remember - if you can ignore the spawners and find the wallflowers this can be one of the most productive times of the year.

Wallflowers are carp that are either resting or actively feeding during the spawn and they can often be found just on the edge of, or outside of, the main spawn.  These are positive fish and can be extremely good targets!  Just don't get sucked in by the fast cruisers and active spawners - its a rookie mistake.

  1. That was cool to see. In my few waters I am not treated so nicely. Working with a jr. high school field day recently we tied, cast, and took these beginners to a local pond with bass, bluegill and trout in one short school day. Long story short a kid came up to me and excitedly told me of a carp he spotted, they are not supposed to be there. So I may have another place, man I hope so.
