    April carpin

    Good to see you out catching! A couple of us had an AMAZING session on Friday.

    Ahh, it's true we can't touch that size of fish(consistently) around here, but you absolutely crush it in terms of numbers. I'm not sure any other carp angler in the country catches as many carp as you.

    "Elite" is a stretch! Haha! "Pretty decent" maybe. Congrats on hitting 500lbs!

    BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    Today was tough, but you saved it with those two last minute fish!!
  5. 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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    That's some specialized tackle. I think someone else knows your spot.

    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.

    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.
  15. 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!
