I was fishing the Meramec river (eastern Missouri) about 6:30 pm Tue. A blue herring comes flying down the river 3 or 4 feet off the water and the carp were going crazy jumping out of the water. That herring flew 300 yards or better before I lost site of it. It looked like the herring was leaving a wake of fish. A straight line for over 300 yards, there must have been thousands of carp in that stretch of the river. I should have been carp fishing because the cats weren't biting,lol.
