Today I went out to target carp the simple way: just sweet corn on a size 6 hook and some free floating shot. The conditions were crap for sight fishing. A heavy chop prevented me from seeing any fish, and when the wind died the sun was too low to deal with. Regardless, I was almost alarmed when I got a sharp pull. This, however, was not what I wanted. I thanked the Bluegill anyway and left him to continue his evening feeding.
