Well I went home this weekend for Mother's day and whenever I go home, I definitely bring my rods to hit up my favorite local spots, the impoundments. I normally target both bass and bowfin in these spots. Sunday morning, I got out there at 7 and fished til the afternoon but noticed the bite died down around 10ish. I got a total of 4 hits, landed 2. Nonetheless, I'm glad to see the bass look very healthy in these creeks. I have a question for you guys. All day, I will always hear fish jump out of the water and if I am quick enough, I catch a glimpse of the fish jumping. I can spot a bass when I see one but I can't tell if they are bowfin or carp which I know both species are in these creeks. I know channel cats are too, but they aren't too big here and I don't think they jump. The fish have a little red on them and I have no idea what they could be. Do carp, bowfin, and catfish jump?
