It will be interesting to hear how you get on, winter Carping can be a real challenge but you sound to me like your up for it.
One more thing, winter Carp in the U.K are often a lot more colourful & better looking!
Best of luck Newt.

surely the warm water should be on top? or is it the bottom ie the ground acts like a heater rewarming the cold water?although i did hear from an expert once that if this phenomenum didn`t occur then the ice would form from the bottom up and never thaw out!

During warm weather, water becomes less dense as it warms. Thus the cooler water is at the bottom. Also (usually) a good thing although in large bodies of water with no current, you may well get stratification and wind up with a layer of water at the bottom that has almost no oxygen so fish (and other critters) avoid it.
