    Nash and dynamite bait for sale

    I doubt if the fish read the expiration dates. Looks like you have a big stock of baits. You should go fishing more often to use them up. Wish I had known this in mid-June. Was in Lancaster, PA for vacation. Good luck on the relocation. FWIW, counted where I have lived in 71 years including military. Had 25 addresses. People ask why I moved so much. "Cheaper than paying rent!"

    B.A.S.S. Industry's reaction to carping

    Bass fishing brings in a ton of $$$$$ to the local economy. Consider that a tournament participant will require: licenses, motel, meals, gas for boat and tow vehicle, tackle (some furnished by sponsor or bought locally). Plus, there is the $$$$ spent by the people who attend the weigh-in or hang out during the tournament before the weigh-in. Dayton, TN is touting itself as the bass capital of the South. They have had several tournaments there on Lake Chickamauga. One tourney had about 500 boats. The boats had to be launched at Dayton and Harrison Bay State Park. FWIW, my son works in Dayton and said the tournaments cause traffic problems and the restaurants are packed. Edit- Lake Chickamauga has been pounded ever since the state record largemouth bass was caught there.

    Custom Bruce Ashby's 12ft 2 3/4 TC "LUCIFER" Carp rod

    Interesting. Looks like a quality build and a great price for a custom rod. A couple of years ago, I contacted Harrison about building on their blanks and never heard from them.

    indingenous seed baits

    Welcome! Jim and Kelly Watt had a TV show, Fly Fishing Video several years ago. They were fly fishing for carp in the shallows like fishing for bonefish. The lake was somewhere in eastern Washington state but they didn't say where.

    Saying hello

    They have used them many times, except for the two year old. She was the only kid in the hospital that had a custom rod. Figured I might not be around to build one for her later.

    Creek carpin

    Hmmmm, there are some places near my alma mater that might prove to be productive. Need to take a trip.

    Saying hello

    Welcome to the addiction! There are a lot of people who will share their knowledge and experience with you. I suggest you join CAG for the benefits as access to an expanded member section that is loaded with a boatload of information. Good for you to fish with your son. I fished a lot with my kids when they were younger. Now it's the grandkids. FWIW, I built custom rods for each of eight grandkids.

    Using New Pack Bait

    Fig newtons???? That is one of my favorite cookies! If I fished with you, I would eat all your packbait........without a glass of milk. That is a quality video. Keep up the good work with fishing for carp and sharing your adventures with the forum. Thanks.

    Using New Pack Bait

    I have a fish-in this Saturday. Da Sniper Olivier) has used garlic/pineapple and caught some nice fish. He has them posted on FB. Need to scrounge up some garlic juice.

    Using New Pack Bait

    Nice mirror. Just think how big it will be later this year. Seems like you have a good recipe for packbait. Many of us experiment so we don't condition the fish to ignore the usual flavors.

    Fishing in eastern wa

    Can't answer your question but I recall an episode of Fly fishing Video with Jim and Kelly Watt several years ago. They were fly fishing for carp in a lake in eastern Washington. They waded the flats like bone fishing in the Keys. Often wonder what happened as they had a great show.

    Catching Large Carp At The Blackstone River In RI

    Bet it only happened once! I was taking a class in college. My mother saw a soft shell turtle along the road and picked it up. I told her she was lucky as its neck can reach over halfway down his back. This was out in the sticks and she would have had a time with it.

    Looking for some guidance

    Smaller streams? Gives me an idea. The custodian of the science building in college said his family used to catch carp to eat during the depression. The county is full of small streams and I have one in mind that goes through a city park. Hmmm. Any excuse to catch carp!
