  1. At least you were not skunked. I have not been out for weeks. Hopefully I will get some time in the fall.
  2. That's good to hear Mike.
  3. Thanks all.... I went with ..... carp zoom bite alarm. I hope this works! That's a beast MO!
  4. Thanks Clay Thanks also Fang. I will check out SAIL. The winds have really dirtied up the water. No amount of fish are worth a shower of cormorant ****!

    New reel

    Hey Mike. Things really slowed down with the wind. Once it kicked up I did not get a fish for 2 hours. Then 2 quick ones and i packed up.
  6. I have seen the light and see the benefit of having a bite alarm. I have been looking around on the 'net for bite alarms and there is a huge variety out there. I was hoping I could get some feedback from those that have used the good the bad and the ugly. I have 2 ideas for getting a bite alarm. 1) get a rod mounted alarm (no need for a rod pod). Are there good units out there? Do any have good battery life? 2) non rod mounted bite alarm wish list -LED for night fishing -long battery life -remote so that I can walk to my car and get a signal letting me know to run back to my rod! Any feedback would be appreciated.

    New reel

    Thanks Mike. Sunday I hooked and landed 9. 2 of which were 23 and 24. The rest were around 4-18. Another great day. I think I am getting addicted to this type of fishing!

    New reel

    Looking forward to trying out my new Shimano 8000 D reel this weekend. Place had the 8000 as same price as 6000 so I figured..... what the heck, why not? Happy Father's day to me!

    Hey Cannonball.... No secret, Just corn on a hair rig. What made the difference for me was using a floating rig. Last year I was stubborn and just let the bait sit on the ground. Floating made all the difference IMO. Both days I had a few groups around me and I was the only one catching. I was also the only one using a "pop up". Here is a question for all you seasoned carpers..... it may sound like an odd question .... why do you use those long rods? Is it so you can use light line as rainbow fisherman use noodle rods on the rivers? I am just using a standard heavy action 7 foot rod with no issues. Maybe a big girl would be an issue?

    Here they are. Also went today and broke off on one fish and caught another (no pic for that one-about the size of smaller fish below.

    Managed 4 decent carp today. I have no idea how to post the pictures-file size is too big so...... no pics. Tight lines all.
  15. It was great meeting a few carp fishermen. I tried my luck on Sunday with no success but did see 2 others that managed to get one each.
