  1. Tried a local lake very early this morning with no hits, then went to a local creek and was 5 for 5, anywhere from 8-17lbs, the latter of which had a broken hair rig with shrink tubing and 3 pieces of fake corn-my hook was right next to it!!!!.. couldn't tell how long the fish had it; I've never seen other fisherman here at all, so maybe the fish come from upstream, but it's be a ways-no good pools for a mile or so.......Soooo, I gained tackle today instead of losing a rig!!....
  2. Well carp fans, it's been way too long with the mug sat empty. So it's time once again to put on the coffee pot, rinse off the mug and prepare to watch another episode. In this week’s new episode of CarpQuest we fish an overnight session at Chatfield Reservoir. With daytime temps pushing 100F, the bite slow, this could be our best change to get some fish on the mat. Hope you enjoy ! John CarpQuest
  3. Hello all!! Well...after an exhausting CAG Big 4 I had to take a break and go fishing, so we went with my two brothers and two of my sons to Minnesota and caught some quality fish!!......in 7 days, we caught 80-90 pike (I was able to catch 42),.. several walleye, a dozen or more largemouth and a large smallmouth, plus two Master Angler Rock bass!..............however, even the largest fish didn't come close to our average carp!!.....back to carpin this week!......
  4. Came across this reading my issue of International Angler, published by the IGFA- so there is recognition of the common carp as a sport fish on an International level!!!!.....with conventional tackle!!!!!.....maybe one of us should enter-eh?...................
  5. Here we go!..........90 minutes to fish and caught a nice 8lb 12ozer, then this channel cat that literally leapt 2 feet straight into the air!!!............It is heavier than any individual we caught last week in Minnesota!!!!....
  6. Hey guys! I just started getting into carp fishing and I am looking for some new spots in north carolina to fish. I know of paylakes of course but I have never fished in those. A week or so ago I caught a 14.5 common carp out of the haw river, and I am looking for some tips to be able to catch more of them when I go, but also during the day because they do not bite much then. I caught this fish around 7:00 to 7:30 with a panko, instant grits, R&W strawberry butternut juice, and cream corn pack bait with a hair rig with a fake piece of pop-up corn. Thanks for reading! Leave any tips or ideas you have for how to catch more and where I can go for that. - Jack
  7. If all the fish are "approved", then it makes this 95th, 13-14lbr my 1,000lb carp for the CAG BIG FOUR Spring 2017!!.....so thankful for CAG members support and advice!!!....can't compete with the big boys in terms of massive fish, but I like catchin many!!.............
  8. So.........this afternoons session included a channel cat of about 3lbs, and then this fantailed goldfish.......very pretty and obviously a pretty smart fish to survive!!....too bad it doesn't count in CAG Big Four!!!
  9. Fishing today added four more carp and MY PERSONAL BEST MIRROR!!!!!......although I've only caught 4 since starting carpin last summer.....appreciate all the tips and support of CAG members!!!
  10. Hello everyone. I am an avid fly fisherman along with my 11 year old son. We recently carp fished for the first time on the Wye River and we are COMPLETELY hooked. I've fished for species all over the east coast and abroad, and we had more fun with theses dirty little devils. I fully understand that fisherman are a clammy bunch when it comes to sharing locations, but could anyone offer us some potential spots to target carp in Maryland? Willing to travel, but preferably on the Eastern Shore and AA County. Thanks so much for your help.
  11. Finally able to fish after an international trip, flooding, rain, rain, rain, cold temps, and 2 straight nights without so much as a hit!!!!! very frustrating but today it was sunny, and the creek was clear....within 15 minutes had two carp and less than 30 minutes later, another, then 2 more at the end of the day!!.....total 4/8, 13/0, 12/8, 11/0, 10/0.....nice when you can run a stretch over 10lbs!!.......though can't get a stretch over 20s!!!

  13. Our first full session of the new season takes us back to Adams County Fairgrounds in Colorado. With only a few fish showing I made the switch to Nashbaits The Key and was rewarded with my first carp of the year. Much victory coffee was consumed. Hope you enjoy the session !

  14. Hi all! The carpin continues, but at a slower rate....Sundays total was only 2 carp, lost one (snapped on the rocks), but decent sized at 7.3 and 10lb 8oz....then Monday was a little tougher but we split with a carp apiece-5.4lbs and 4.6lbs...his had a healed scar on the left side- he's still looking for his 10lbr, but coming close!!!...got snow and very cold weather so we'll see what the next couple days brings fishin!!!.......got a little more time as the garage is completely clean!... good luck all!!
  15. Hi all! I'll admit this is weird request, but is there someone close to Jenkintown PA that can pick up and ship (i'll pay for shipping, etc.) a large (45lb) carp statue I am purchasing?-there's no shipping from the seller.........thanks for at least thinking about it!!........
  16. Another weekend, another couple carp-these are a little nicer though- a 12lb 12ozer, then an 8 and 1/2 lbr!, both of which were caught in a creek just 2 minutes from the house!..the smaller fish was the hardest fighter....the 12lbr not so much......the creek has a series of very large, deep holes at a bend in the creek....I've caught lots of small channel cats, a couple of small mouth buffalos and my first river carpsucker-(just an inch off a master angler award), as well as mostly small to medium carp-the 12lbr is about the largest I've seen or caught in this part of the creek, but I think it holds larger!......Not an ATC event, but it'll do for the 90 minutes I had after cleaning 1/2 of the garage today!!......enjoy!.....

  18. Hello all!! February is winding down, but not the carpin!.......6 fish on Sunday, 2 on Monday, and then this afternoon, 3 more....my son landed 2 like a pro- you can see his confidence growing with each outing!.....Doesn't match Luke's latest 100lb challenge in 2 hours on Cats and Carp.com, or even close to what you're going to catch at ATC (-I wish I was there, even just to watch!!)....but it is still nice to have the chance to fish!!....hope ya like- all caught from a 300yd stretch of creek- 3lbs to a couple of 9lbrs and todays fish topped 218lbs for the month.............things are warming up!!!.... good luck all wherever you're fishin, and those who aren't-GO-or you will regret it...
  19. ...and the carpin continues, though not as hot as last week...6 fish the past two days, 5+,5+,6+,7+,8+ including this very fat, very dark 10lbr today (last pic)......and another couple split barbell fish-our department of conservation is interested in these as a possible sequela to pollution!, and surprisingly, when I told them I had caught two mirrors this past fall, they were very interested and asked to keep them up to date on any further catches.......if anyone in Missouri has or does catch some mirrors, can you contact me?............supposed to warm into the 60s by the end of the week, so I'm thinking about goin carpin......
  20. Hi all! I have a simple request; can ya'll send me a photo, with a weight and length, of any common carp you catch with fan-shaped/branched barbels?....I have now caught 5, all from the same location so far and I am trying to see if this is a step-up in evolution of carp barbels-branching to gain surface area and increase success of finding food-maybe pressure from less food in the waterway?...anyway-just seein if anyone out there has caught carp with similar barbels-appreciate any help!!......MO Carper..........
  21. And the carpin continues!!.....In 4 hours caught 12 carp from 6lbs 6oz up to an 11lb 13 oz!!, plus a 10-1, 10-4, 10-7, and a 9-9.... a total of 104lbs 3oz....an average of over 8 1/2lbs!!...and I lost more than a half-dozen hits as well.....temps were climbing into the 50s today and warmer tomorrow, but alas, can't go tomorrow.......I had one with only one eye, and another with unusual fimbriated (fanned-out) barbels-the second or third I've caught from this spot.....also noted most fish fought much harder than last month-water was a little warmer......and most of the carp were in good body condition, but not the fat ones I noted last month- maybe they're starting to feed cause they're using body condition/fat reserves and the water is starting to warm just abit?........some truly beautiful, vibrant colors in most-you couldn't paint the shine!!!.......sorry for all the pics-just my youthful enthusiasm!!...good carpin all!!!......
  22. What a day today!.....62F, so took my son ( a CAG member too!) fishin about 8 minutes away-just a creek next to a grocery store, though no one fishes it for carp).......well....with the subtle bite technique we caught 7 carp; 55lbs 6oz.....in 3 hours.....none of these flip-flopped fought!- all made several runs.............that makes 17 carp for January, including my two FFF, for 107lbs 11oz!!- for a 6.29lb average!!..............Never would have guessed it!-thanks in part to all the CAG members for sharing all their expertise.........was going to a large lake, but too windy, and viola!-fishes!!!!!....Cant wait til it warms up!!! ....................sometimes ya just gotta go fish!!!.......keeps your sanity!!!!!..................good luck and skill all!!!....On to February!!
  23. HERE WE GO AGAIN ! Season 5 is off and running ... Get your coffee cups out (this is a two cup session), fill with hot java, and sit back and watch the show ! In this weeks opening episode of CarpQuest Season 5, we look back at the great time I spent with my brother when he visited last summer. We had some excellent carp fishing adventures, a dawn sunrise at the top of Pikes Peak and some night photography. We hope you enjoy! Tight-Lines, John CarpQuest

(started at 39F though)..wife and one son (both CAG members ) went along-so excited!!!.....After 4 hours of NOT ONE FISH except two tail- snagged big-head carps, we finally started a near-furious bite!!.....I had tried boiled corn, strawberry panko, sweet corn, oat panko and nuthin!....and then, the action started....AND MY WIFE CAUGHT HER FIRST CARP!- PLAYED IT LIKE THE PRO SHE IS!- It wrapped the dock post, but freed itself and voila!- landed this nice 5lb 9ozer!!.....A proper CAG initiation!!.....After that, my son wanted his second, and within minutes caught......well....I'll have him make his first post!!...so proud of both!!!
