The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
At this time of the year carp are busy feeding up on just about anything they can get their teeth around in order to replace lost salts, vitamins and minerals that have become depleted during the long winter months.
March 1st already! Spring is just around the corner and the carp are starting to wake up after their torpid existence through the winter. As the sun climbs higher in the sky with each passing day so the warmer water stirs the rich soup of lake water into life.
Though the water temperatures are certainly dropping fast and the nights drawing in, carp can be very active at this time of the year and many experts agree that particle baits, seed blends and even nut baits are very effective during the early winter months of November and December. At this time of year carp are on the lookout for food to build up body fat and overall condition to see them through the coldest part of the winter and that is why particle baits are ideal as they are high in energy-providing fats, backed up with good levels of dietary protein to improve general health and condition.
