Where are they? North metro lakes.

A few weeks ago we were doing great catching carp from shore but now we can't find any. I can see them surfacing in the areas we are trying but no takers. We are using oatmeal balls, corn, and carp bait mixture from Gander. Any suggestions for the 4th of July weekend? Do we need to throw out deeper? Can you use a bobber to keep the bait up higher in the water column where they seem to be lately?

Thanks for the help.

One possability is that they are spawning right now. During the spawn the fish normally consume very little food. Theres a good chance they good be done by the weekend even and fishing would be back normal. Crawlers have always worked well for me when nothing else will.

I've seen them rolling around on the surface of the river while ignoring all the tasty carp treats I've been throwing at them. Not even the small mouth buffalo will bite. Hopefully they will be hungry again by the weekend.

I would be willing to bet it has something to do with the spawn, but it seems like they should be long done with that on the river.
