    Wanted to run my skunk by the hive mind, maybe you can catch whatever mistake I made.

    Went to Henshaw last weekend, 2 anglers, 4 rods with oatmeal/corn/soda pack bait. Zero fish landed. Saw a couple Japanese guys on the dock catching some on a float rig. Tried suspending some corn under a float and still nothing.
    Mostly fished down towards the dam. Saw carp jumping everywhere.

    The silver lining was that I did manage to get my car stuck in the sand.

    Any advice from more experienced Henshaw anglers would be very welcome. Thanks.

    Not sure how it's fishing now, but during the summer the "big" carp (>20") feed off the surface. Find which was the wind is pushing the scumline, and you'll find the fish, which is maybe why the guys were getting them off floating rigs. Not sure how they change in the fall, though.

    Sucks. How’s the bottom at Henshaw? Muddy, rocky? For top water carp action use plain ol bread and hook no weight. Saw people in Japan doing it in a river. These came mail the other day. Gonna try a pack bait vs pop up boilies and fake corn. Just to have some options.
