  1. WHOA!!!!!!!!!! One fish and you win the Big four!!! MO
  2. Well............I'm hearing crickets on the forum all!!.............just cause the Big Four is over, doesn't mean the carp get a respite eh?........Today I braved the 94 degree, 100 degree heat index to get some creek carp and, yep, they were there!!...... In 6 minutes, I caught 4 fish; one carp within 30 seconds, then another 3 minutes later, then two channel cats three minutes apart, and wound up with 7 fish altogether- 5 carp and 2 channel cats-lost two more hits in 40 minutes. All on either strawberry or lemon pack on 8lb test with super ultra light rods- the hits barely make the alarms trip and it was non-stop. All in a new spot-I never made it to one of my favorite holes!!..........glad I took some lemonade!!!...........Go to the creeks all- the action is non-stop!!! Though small, they fought like 10-12lbrs on light drag!!!!......so much fun!!!.............MO carpin set up creek.MOV
  3. Congrats to you all!!!...... well done, and well done to the organizers-stellar performance!!!.......... Looking forward to fall!!.......(and daily fishing in between )........MO
  4. Yeah, the Asian carp will bump lines as they go past, but you won't catch any. Try to find an old lake with a feeder stream into it ( older than 15 years-better 20-30 years)......patience grasshopper!...
  5. HAPPY FATHERS DAY ALL!........HERE'S HOPING EVERYONEGOOD FISHING BUT SPEND TIME WITH THE KIDS-IT GOES BY WAY TOO FAST!!! .......MO
  6. Nicely done David as usual!!!..............keep on fishin!........ MO
  7. OMG!!! Just when I thought there was simply no way to up my tally i DOUBLED on two monsters!- this 23-3 and this 35" 22-3lbr!!!!, the latter of which wrapped around three moorings and an outboard motor, shredding the mono but it held (12lb test) til I could land it , while holding the 23lbr in my sling in the water......What an incredible, incredible ending to CAG!!!!!........So....my totals are 24-0, 23-3, 22-3 and 22-2- all from the same spot at the lake with no chumming. Tonights fish were just before a Northwest storm moved in, with wind and lightening- SO EXCITING!!!!!!!!, and my two buddies, a great blue heron and a toad (toady) present!!!!..................oh, and landed an 11 lbr earlier- a real screamer!..................................YEEEEEEEE HAWWWWWWW YALL!!!!!!!!!
  8. Thanks!!.......I think I've go the creeks down, local lakes down, so will start focusing on the rivers...........we got a couple here.... ...........good carpin buddy!- At some point I will travel out east again ( I lived in New Jersey for 3 years) and will look ya up!...... MO

  10. So...........unlikely I'll get any bigger fish tonight; this is likely my CAG Big Four Spring 2019. 24-0, 22-2, 21-1 and 21-0........Can't compete with the big boys out east, but around here-respectful catches, and they're only gonna get bigger!.........Thanks to all who helped organize the event and the anglers that participated!!!. Was great fun!!!.............. MO
  11. Ahhhhhh you are correct!......Sad thing is- most people appeared downtrodden, sad-they would not initiate conversation, and wouldn't make eye contact. When i asked, they stated it was because of communist rule. When i stated they were free, most stated their parents weren't and it still hadn't sunk in......very sad-younger people seemed a little more spirited..................fishing was good regardless!!!......
  12. hmmmm, if its man made and no connection to a creek, flood plain, etc. it may not have carp....................
  13. Hi Jesse, Yes, there are quite a few on the site, and the membership is growing. I am not sure there are many from your stretch of the woods, across the pond as we say. Maybe Ian or some CAG board/ members can help. Give it a day or so and you will get some more replies. I have only fished outside the US once, in Czechoslovakia and it was fabulous!!!...... Many are envious of the quality of fish over there and the reverance they hold in various countries. Welcome!!!......... MO
  14. How big is that lake, and does it have a feeder stream? If it's a pond, it may not have carp. If it does....................................patience. You might also try at night............good luck! MO
  15. What are the odds?.......I had a walleye hit my tight-line a couple weeks ago-definitely my most unusual catch carp fishing! Two nights ago, at the end of the session, and on my last rod in I hooked what I thought was a tree branch, (commonly catch those), and simply reel them in- depending where they are hooked, they swing side to side, but no, this one kept going to the left and when I landed it, I was speechless!!!!! ANOTHER WALLEYE!!!! I'm definitely thinking the walleye circuit now. This one hit a pop-up large, glow in the dark fake corn below a yellow regular sized fake corn!!!.......released them both, but already planning on trolling my panko bait method lead fake corn set up for walleye!!..... I'll send videos!! MO
  16. Um, I needs my chair for my knees.........prepping for my wheelchair.......not sure how the state and federal government will provide ADA access to all my carping venues, but I'll place my requests soon............. :)............ nice fish yourself!..... MO
  17. So, if any of you have any compassion for the Midwest, you would use your investments to divert those waterways towards Missouri. I can give you specific GPS coordinates! I will take care of chumming the route, and would safely turn any monsters I catch in the general direction back towards you when released. But, you know carp- they have a mind of their own and may choose to stick around.....If it's easier, I'll travel out there I guess...... Congrats to all!!!!!..Truly impressive!!....... MO
  18. CO carp haven't spawned yet from the looks of that one eh?...good job!.......... MO
  19. I have graduated from a subtle bite technique of slack-line corn in creeks on Walmart bank sticks and simply watched the poles (and did very well in creeks and some lakes even), to two pods and three brands of bite alarms, all with NGT chain swing arms and clear bobbins with isolites. I have Nash siren SF bite alarms- they are light weight, beep and light when runs occur and you can control volume; I have a new pair of Fox micron M+ alarms that beep and volume controlled, and I have QDos remote alarms, the latter of which I use the least as I am never too far from my poles regardless. They are heavier and its one more piece i have to remember, but they also have the advantage of having different colored lights when runs occur so you know which pole has a run, especially if you have spaced bank sticks ( I now have aluminum alloy bank sticks fitted with alarms :). It's definitely individual preference; I don't have Delkims, and I am pretty simple carp fishing- don't like all the fancy technology as much as you youngins :), and I still go to creeks with super ultralight rods and corn................scout and find the fish and you will catch-em!- still learning that one MO
  20. WOW!...... a pair of 30lbrs AND a pair of great carpers!!!! Whats the odds?????? great work again!
  21. WOW- that's really impressive, especially for a river fish. I creek fish a lot and those carp are longer, stronger and leaner than lake carp, the majority of the latter don't fight nearly as strong- WELL DONE!!!
  22. Look like river fish? Great great job!!.... MO
  23. Nice work!!....... Interesting on the mirror. I cant see the trauma on the fish, but to me (as a zoo veterinarian ), this appears to be more of a skin irritation, skin infection, or a reflection of a deeper problem. The lesions are generalized. The fish is too large for an otter to handle (the large carp are run up on shore where the otters can dispatch it), and a pike would be of record size to even try. Could this be more likely of spawning trauma? I see of lot of trauma in the commons here in the spring with similar, but not as severe of skin issues.....the lack of scales would predispose the fish to this type of trauma. Is this from a lake or river?....................just some thoughts and job well done!!!........ MO
  24. Thanks!......I'm familiar with the sight vs scent, but was always told the barometric pressures affect all fish, but I wonder if it really does affect the carp, or catfish?????
