  1. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    Today was tough, but you saved it with those two last minute fish!!
  2. Had my most memorable session to date this past Sunday. Broke my long standing PB Common of 28lbs with a brute Common of 31lbs! Add two other 25lb class Commons and a few smaller ones. Also broke my Grass carp PB with a thick 41lb fish! Added one other long lean grassie that measured 41". It was truly a great day for me. Was thankful for being joined by "petew" from the forums and AJ from the Facebook group. It would have been a tough time netting these fish on my own. 31lb PB Common Couple 25lb Commons Few scrappers PB 41lb Grass Carp Long, lean grassie.
  3. On the bank again!

    It's not looking good.
  4. On the bank again!

    I think I will be out at Olathe Lake Sunday morning. Haven't tried it this year and have seen lots of carp breaching when I am out on my kayak.
  5. On the bank again!

    He starts middle school this fall! Yikes!! We keep it simple with crazy eights, war, go fish etc. Haha!
  6. On the bank again!

    Took my oldest out fishing for a couple sessions this month. Caught some nice Commons and a big grassie. Channel cats and card games keep us busy in between carp bites. Looking back on his first ever outing and our most recent one amazes me in how much he has grown. Here are some pics from our most recent outings. VID_20170714_071850831.mp4
  7. night fishing

    It was a great night to be fishing.
  8. todays fish

    We(Me, petew, and AJ)fished the overnight at heritage a couple weeks back. Fished off the dam. Each caught one carp, good size on all of them. I think heritage holds some surprisingly big carp for it's size. We have been doing more evening session during the heat wave are having.
  9. todays fish

    That's some specialized tackle. I think someone else knows your spot.
  10. WTB: Short bankstick

    I do, and that was the plan if it came to that. But , I ended up ordering some things on BCT and added the short bankstick to the order.
  11. Hello People checking in

    Of course they would like you to come talk at Bass Pro, the bow guys would love to get some info on good carp "fishing" spots. Remember, bow killers love little creeks and streams. Easy pickens. I'm sure you have walked the Bass Pro store many times (as have I), how many carp specific items do they carry? Maybe some "Uncle Joe's carp bait", I'm sure that's good stuff. Now head on over to the archery section and feast your eyes upon the bowfishing section. Big difference, huh? Oh yeah, did you see the rigged out boat specifically for bowfishing sitting right outside the front doors. What's the price tag on that? Now tell me which activity they will seriously support. I wouldn't trust the Sponser of the biggest bowfishing tournament of the year to honestly give any serious support to catch and release carp anglers. When they are hosting the countries biggest catch and release carp tournament, I MIGHT see it differently. JMHO I will let you do the math.
  12. Had another fun session Friday! Weather was great. Multi species captured, 4 Commons, 1 Grass and a few nice channel cats. Was out of Panko, so mixed up my second favorite bait, Prefessa's Frankenstein carp mix(find the recipe in the carp bait section) and it produced! Lots of fight in all the fish today. Lost a couple to hook pulls. Hoping to get after them again this afternoon! Check out the video! Or here are the pics!

  14. WTB: Short bankstick

    Yeah, BCT has some really short ones that would be perfect(6"), but it's tough to swallow $6.55 shipping on a $9 item that's six inches long and as big around as my index finger. Might have to wait until I need some other items or keep searching eBay and the wish app.
  15. Very windy and hot day at the lake. I was joined once again with CAG member petew and AJ from the FB group. The commons were smaller but hard fighting. The takes were pretty vicious, I have some butt grip rests in order! Haha! This is the only lake that the carp try and rip the pole into the water!! Although I did forget to set the baitrunner on one take, look for that in the video! Yikes! Got some nice grass carp today, one topped 36lbs. Enjoy the video!
