  13. Begining Carp Fishing

    I have been carping for as long as I could remember. When were kids, a buddy of mine lived next to a big river (the Ohio) and we could go there and fish all the time. I can remember catching tons of carp on home made dough bait....just a simple dough ad vanilla extract added...worked like a charm. We didn't catc many big fish but we sure had a lot of fun. fast forward to today and I am still a carp fan. There is nothing quite like a big carp run on light tackle. I do have some European rods now coupled with Penn reels and I love it. I would venture a guess that more than half of my fishing time is dedicated to carp. I do chase trout in the spring and catfish here and there...plus fishing for bluegills for bait is always fun too. But big carp is the one species I prob focus most of my time on...and it is truly rewarding.

    Georgia has changed a lot since I first came here in 1965 for college. But then again, what hasn't changed in 50+ years? You should come back down for a visit sometime. It's "only" about a 600 mile trip to Atlanta from Morgantown. Seriously, if you ever do plan to come down this way, let me know. Maybe Cannonball (the new TN state chair) and I can plan a joint fish-in.
  15. FFF Advice?

    In my short experience (but fishing throughout the year), the fish will hit, but everything is slower-very soft takes, minimal runs, and slow fights....I totally agree finding slack water below riffles and deeper water will help-you may pre-bait but very little-they're not going to move and eat a lot, so you want them to take your bait. Most of all, be prepared for the cold-you may be sitting a while....I have a portable propane heater, hand/foot warmers, etc........I also believe warming your pack bait helps disperse scent and draw fish in.......I loved my first FFF and caught fish, but be prepared!!!......a lot is weather dependent..........................good luck!!!

  17. FFF Advice?

    Ryan--It's obvious you've done some review of what works in the winter. Your location, depth, and prebaiting, in my opinion, are all on track,. Best of luck! --Frank

  21. NTrap vs. Coated Braid

    coated braid all the way. I never use straight braid. Unless you prefer to fish pva bags, where your whole rig is inside, yes. Standard rig? I use korda IQ and coated braid.

    Nice video, nice fish. Great job! I assume you made this much earlier in the year -- you were wearing shorts and wading, and I didn't notice any snow.

    nice captures

    Awesome fish! Congrats!

    Nicely done!- great fish!!....I love calm waters too!.....
  27. NTrap vs. Coated Braid

    I started out the same way. I feel coated kicks your rigs away on the landing better. When I was using regular braid it seemed like I was getting tangled a lot more. Also easier for advanced rigs also such as hinged rigs, multi rigs and whatnot to get the presentation you are after.
