  1. Czechoslovakia? That must have been in the early 90s before the Czech Republic and Slovakia split? My grandparents came from what is now Slovakia. You can Google and find fishing guides in those countries. My grandmother's town had a huge lake by it. Always wondered if it had carp.
  2. There is nothing as big as the fish almost caught.πŸ€—
  3. Thanks for the report and photos! A good day. It's odd how carp will take one bait and ignore another. My luck is that they ignore all my baits. Surprised that people don't blame carp for the green stuff.
  4. You didn't say how much the carpers weighed.☺️
  5. Canadian geese? Just watch where you step! Watch where you sit on the bank. Tell the lifeguard that you could b a arrested for cruelty to animals. Hmmm. Throwing carp on the bank to die is like throwing kittens in the lake to control the cat population. Is there a difference?
  6. You are waaay ahead of me! Going tomorrow so I might beat you. 😊 What are you using for bait, if it's not a secret? Keep us posted of future captures. May I suggest you get some sort of mat to keep the fish off the ground? Yoga mats can be cheap (like me) and found at the big box stores as Wally World or the exercise area of sporting goods stores. I go through the exercise area to keep in shape. Round is a shape!
  7. Those goldfish are hard to filet! Are they invasive or introduced? We have a PB, Personal Best, and now we have a PL, Personal Least.
  8. Barry, need to try it.
  9. Canned sweet corn, flavored and unflavored. Doing an experiment with unflavored corn on the hook and a bare-bones approach to tackle.
  10. Carp are fickle as I have found they will change their minds without notice. I don't stick to one flavor on that basis. I have some flavors from a paylake store in SC. They are concentrated so a few drops will do the job. Mostly, I use flavors from the grocery- vanilla, anise, peppermint, to name a couple. Not much luck with maple or orange. You don't need a lot of flavor; a few drops will be OK. I have caught carp on sweet corn soaked in white vinegar! Don't add a lot of water to the oatmeal when it begins to dry. Just add a few drops at a time. Good fishing!
  11. At least something was biting a lot. Rather it be a carp, though. One is more than zero!
