  1. Hooked up with Dunkel yesterday for a day of river carp fishing. We managed 13 carp from 8am to 5pm. Caught them on a variety of things. Awesome Possum Corn, Homemade peanut butter boilies, Dunkels Steamies, Cinnamon corn, Grape, Apple Whiskey corn, XXX Red Peach puff. Everything we threw yesterday work except the coconut boiles. .They ranged in size from 5-6lb runt to all the rest from 15-20 1/2lbs. Met a guy who was looking for carping help, we gave him pack, pickups and Hooks on leaders and sinkers. Hopefully he'll come here and visit! Hey we tried!
  2. Two PBs busted in one session!

    Heck of a haul! Way to go!
  3. Poll: Where would you fish this swim?

    I'd set up so I could fish A and B at same time. maybe set 2 rods to each direction. If I had to chose one over the other to start I'd probably fish B and adjust as nessasary. Chum and they will come!

    Its always fun when a new swim pays off. Looks like you hit a gold mine!

  9. Pennsylvania Roll Call!

    Not from Pa but close, Morgantown WV area, I'm about 6 miles south of the Pa/WV line as the crow flys. I do have a Pa Non-Resident Lisc and will be fishing Pa. later this summer.
  10. Spent the past 2 days chasing carp at 3 different lakes in WV with Dunkel and Jerome. Day 1: Tygart Lake, Rainy miserable weather water was above summer pool and though we saw several carp jumping there were no takers. Called it a day and ran to Stonewall Jackson Lake. We saw 2 carp jump there and the water looked good so we prebaited it up with a couple gallons of boiled deer corn and left. Day 2: Stonewall Jackson Lake, still sprinkling but going to clear up. We all set up and it wasn't long I had my first Stonewall Jackson carp. A true monster at about 2lbs. lol I continued to catch carp on on everything I threw at them for a total of 7 and then I said I'm done here! 2-5lb carp. Dunkel had some good runs no hookups, Jerome caught a couple monsters of 2-3-4???lbs. Figured we are in small carp mecca lets pull up equipment and head to Stonecoal Lake to fishing out the day. Water was fine saw big carp jumping far off. We set up and the wait began. Nothing happening but the occasional carp jumping here and there gave us hope. Dunkel finally gets a screaming run, fish on! After a nice battle he banks a nice 22lber. That was the last action we had. We bid Jerome farwell and headed home! Jerome stayed there fishing, hopefully he caught something. I am a poor picture taker, never think in time to get the good pictures and really dropped the ball this time but heres some of the pics I took when I though hey take some pics! lol

  12. Dead forum

    I'm not sure where everyone has went? Did they all just lose interests or are they all gathering elsewhere. I realize lives change people move on ect maybe that's it?
  13. Dead forum

    Dead and soon gone. Eventually no one will come here to see nothing new. Question to anyone that might know, is the facebook thing where you need a password to get in doing ok as in lots of people lots of post? Or whatever people do at facebook. If so there is the problem, because that's basically telling you/us join that page or lose out! No I will not join.
  14. Another great day at the lake

    That lakes is treating you guys good! Is the top fish a koi or ghost carp?
  15. Dunkel, Possum and Jerome Carping WV

    Theres huge muskies in Stonecoal. I've seen some really nice ones caught there.
  16. Great day at Lake

    Nice bunch of fish! Love those mirrors!
  17. It was a beautiful day in WV to be carping, since we had no marijuana to smoke on Marijuana Day we decided to go fishing instead. We headed to the Pot-O-Mac River to try our luck. Our luck was good and we ended up with 16 carp landed 3 carp lost to hook pulls. Dunkel caught his personal best and I caught a nice mirror which are rather rare in these parts. Flavors of the day were some homemade peanut butter concoction Dunkel made up, cinnamon corn, coconut corn, and Aweson Possum corn. Heres some pics of our day!

    Went fishing today with my girlfriend. Well I fished and she read a book. Everything looked like a good day was in store for me. Carp rolling over and area I threw bait in 2 days ago. Beautiful morning as the fog lifted off the lake but not much was happening. Then Wayne Price pulls in so I walk over to talk to him and get a carp report. Told me the carp weren't up in the cove this year like before and he hadn't seen many. Naturally now I get a run and before I could get to the rod he got off but hung me in a downed tree. Later I get another run and got the fish turned away from the tree, finally banked it after a nice battle. Turned out to be my biggest so far this year. That was it no bites after that and we finally had to start back towards home. I'll give it a week or so and try it again! Heres a few pics

  21. The mystery of the 1 pound carp

    Theres a hole we call the Parasite Hole on a river that's gin clear. We could see probably over 100 carp that were no more than a pound tops. On out were bigger carp and on farther out yet bigger ones and way out 5 that were obviously over 20lbs possibly a 30 in the group. We could observe them due to the gin clear water and the fact we were 20ft above them on a bank that's almost a cliff. Only time we ever saw carp that small. I tried to catch the huge ones but they just swam off when the bait hit the water out in front of them. Not sure how I would have landed one if I did hook it? Kind of a dumb move on my part to even try. Reason we call it The Parasite Hole is a guy was trying to tell us we had parasites, he said "you know worms" and proceeded to tell us all about these parasites that were eating us up from within. lol

    I saw that maize and thought someones been fishing for carp here. Threw the maize in to get rid of the evidence didn't want anyone poaching our swim lol. Little did I realize it was Jeromes maize until it was already tossed. I've got plenty of maize to repay with the interests! It was a not so brilliant moment on my part! lol
