  1. Georgia Carp USA

    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.
  2. Georgia Carp USA

    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.

  5. Mirror Carp..?

    There are definitely no guarantees where mirrors are concerned. I caught a small carp back in the late 1960's that I was told was a "leather". But I didn't catch another "mirror" until about 4 years ago, when I learned about a lake where about 1/4 of the carp are mirrors. Anyway, for me it was almost 50 years between my first and second. Luckily, I've managed a few more since then -- all but one from that lake.
  6. Georgia Fall Fish-in

    It's THIS Saturday (10/21). Hope to see you there... but if possible, let me know in advance so I'll have a head count for food.
  7. Possum & Dunkel Fall Fantastic

    Yes, Carping is fun on its own. But it's the sharing time on the bank with good friends that makes it really special. Good job!
  8. Georgia Fall Fish-in

    Just one week from this Saturday. So far it appears that we'll have around 1/2 dozen there, but still hoping for more.
  9. Two PBs busted in one session!

    NICE!!! WTG!
  10. A quick introduction and my PB carp

    Cool job! Welcome aboard.
  11. CAG Big Four goldfish!!

    Of course you did, Tony!!! All of us here in Georgia know you as the "Turtle King". I think you'd be disappointed if you didn't catch at least one turtle every time you fish.

  13. "Hurricane" carping

    I love to fish, Tony, but you're either far more dedicated -- or else just a bit crazier -- than I am. Regardless, it would seem that your adjustment to the extreme condition was spot on! Nice!
  14. Unusual double!!

    Re-reading this post, I noticed that you pointed out that the gar hit your corn "as you were reeling it in". That reminded me of a largemouth bass I caught many years ago -- early 1960's -- while fishing for carp with dough balls. Back in those days it was common to fish a rig with a "bank" sinker tied at the end of the line, with two loops tied roughly 6" to 1' above the sinker, to which two snelled hooks would be attached. Then we'd put doughballs on the two hooks. The dough we used in those days would last for about 1/2 hour, so if we didn't have a bite, we'd reel in, re-bait and recast. Most of the time what little dough was left on the hook would wash off as we reeled. One day, as I was reeling in to re-bait, a largemouth of about 1-1/2 pounds struck one of my hooks. That puzzled me for a while, until I realized that I was picking up some slimy pond weed as I reeled -- and the moving hook with the green mossy weed very closely resembled a small green sunfish. I can only assume that's why that bass hit my "empty" hook.
  15. Dry Dog Food ?

    Sadly, last fall we had to say goodbye to the rescue dog we had for the past 10 years. I recently discovered a sizable amount of her dry dog food still in the basement, so I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how I could use it for carp fishing. It's a high-protein, low fat blend, so my first thought was to grind it in the food processor, and then maybe use it in a boilie mix. This afternoon I did "process" it, and it yielded a full gallon bucket of pulverized dog food. Unfortunately, the texture of the results didn't come out very fine. In fact, the overall texture is fairly coarse, even without the small chunks that remain. Bottom line, I'm not sure how well it would work in boilies. My concern is that they may not hold together very well. If, as I suspect, this doesn't work well for boilie making, does anyone have any other good ideas how I can use it? I hate to waste that high protein mix for spodding, or even for use in method mix, but I will, unless someone gives me some better ideas. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!
