Slow morning for me Mid Lake

Fished out of Mill Creek Ramp from 7 - 11 today.  One rig at the ramp when I got there, 2 when I returned.  Just a couple wake boats - looks like we got our lake back.  Only caught 5 Spots and one short walleye.  The locations that produced a week ago (25 - 30 fow on the bottom of gravel points) were still loaded with fish but they were not very interested even when I put a crawler right in front off them.  WT dropped to 80 deg.  Didn't bother with pics as the Spots were just short but fat.

What little deep bite I had went away so I went up the James today.  All the way to Carr’s.  We had a lot of action on Ned and shaky.  We missed several, lost some and boated 23.  Most were spots but some skinny green fish were long enough to be keepers.  Next trip is up white for me.

All the way to Carr’s

When I retired here in 2016 I was floating the James and meet a local guy and we floated and fished down to Walnut Springs.  He was telling me the names of various locations - Blunks, McCord Bend, Ashercane, etc.  I don't recall Carrs and I don't see any reference on any maps.

Where is Carr's and where does the name come from?

Thanks

It came from the name of the people who owned the land, like Blunk’s and Asher’s.  Down stream from Walnut Spring around the bend there is an old boat ramp on the left.  From there down the straight stretch to the next bend is what we have always called Carr’s.

I'm so old I generally don't remember yesterday, my watch tells me what day it is, but I do recall the fella that day telling me where old man Asher grew cane - Ashercane.  I think it is where Walnut Springs is today.  I enjoyed floating and talking to him that day.  We were both in metal jon boats - I still use that boat today for duck hunting.
