After my trip to Grand Isle, LA I spent most of the next week writing, attending Christmas parties (school and work), dance recitals, my oldest daughters birthday and some other things that I can't recall now. The winter issue of http://somuchwater.com/ will be out soon and there's a good chance you'll find a bad article from me included. The month of December is usually very busy and fishing takes a back seat, or maybe it moves to the passenger seat after the 1st week.
However, I found a few hours last week to check on my local carp waters. As the temperature drops into the 30's at night the grassers are becoming harder to find. It's a normal transition from the shallows to deeper water near the flats.
Targeting them shifts from looking for tailing and other aggressive behavior to trying to spot a shadow or tail in deeper water. As you would expect, the catching has slowed way down. But they still eat when you can find one. The method has been a nymph under an indicator on a light fluorocarbon leader.
While the fishing hasn't been all that exciting (compared to sightfishing bull reds in SELA) I did get some really exciting news. I was invited to join the Jackson Kayak Regional Fishing Team. It's pretty cool getting to represent a company I respect, doing something I love.
Hope to get out a few more times before the new year. My xmas, birthday, anniversary, father's day, I cleaned my wife's car, watched Twilight with my wife, said I'm sorry 1st, and anything that deserves a gift, was a GoPro 4. I'm no JJ Abrams but hope to get some video on here in 2016.
