Details:I took full advantage of the great weather we had over the past week to get out on the banks. I spent four days fishing a couple of spots along the Blackstone in hopes of landing some great fish.

It started on Thursday, with Frank itching to get out as well and catch his first winter carp. We decided to start at a familiar area and settled on the bend in the river at the farm. I had some luck but the day left Frank without a fish.

Friday we headed down river to the Stanley Woolen mill area in hopes of catching some of the great 15+ pound carp that frequent that stretch. It was instant interest though no carp would take the bait solid enough to get a hook up. A slow day that ended fish-less.

Frank had things to do so his quest for a winter carp would have to wait...Liz and I headed to Lincoln RI. I like this stretch near the Kelly house because it is a much tougher water to pull fish from. With no chumming and no corn the field is already stacked in the carps favor. The air temp reached over 45 degrees that day and the sun shone through-out. I had a great time although I saw no fish.

This brought me to Sunday. I packed up my kit and headed out solo. I thought to try Rice City Pond and hiked my gear about a mile into the bush. I set up and fished a few hours but something in my gut kept saying " No, this is not the place." Round lunch time I packed and hiked out...returning to my old faithful, the bend in the river. With two blanks behind me I wanted, no needed to catch something. As I set up I noticed small bubbles along the far shore line, something I haven't seen since last summer. I placed a Dat Food obsession boilie on my hair, trimmed the sides to let the flavor leak better and cast to the bubbles...would it be enough? Watch and see!

Location Details:Winding branches of the river and canal merge here forming some great cross and back currents, coves and marshes to hunt down large fish. With a gravel and heavy silt bottom, fish ranging from 5-30+ pounds, many weed beds and loads of under water structure fishing here can be both challenging and rewarding.
