Had some time this afternoon to fish with my son, and we caught 2 channel cats, two turtles, and 5 carp, 6-4, 6-14, 7-7, 8-0, 4-6, the latter of which was the chunkiest carp we've ever caught and a great golden color- almost a goldfish!- all fish fought very hard, apparently recuperating from the flooding, these are the most beautiful fish we've caught from any swim!- no specific explanation why.....,the 7lbr had a damaged mouth, and the 8lbr has a paired split barbell, which we find commonly...................
(CO) JohnFinney posted a topic in Pictures, Stories & VideoWell, it's not been too long, your coffee pot is likely still warm, so sit back, pour yourself a hot mug of java and enjoy our latest episode. With our recent success fishing overnight we returned to Chatfield for another session. Over confident from our previous trip we setup in the rain and wind, anticipating many catches. A few catfish graced the net, including a big fat channel cat. We did land some baby carp and finally a few nice low doubles. Tough night, but still fun. Victory Coffee is not just for carp, any great catch is worthy of a mug! Hope you enjoy ! Tight-Lines, John CarpQuest
My first December carp-a 6lbr caught in less than 15 minutes after casting out.... in a larger river (not the Missouri yet-haven't figured that one out yet :)........(just trying to find spots for FFF)...Couldn't believe how well conditioned it was!!....Only carp of the day but several catfish.......
A new episode of CarpQuest has been released, S3E8 - Catfish and Carp For this episode, we survive the scorching heat at the Fairgrounds and land a good common carp and channel catfish. Daris (Mr. "Cat" Fishrangler himself) and Kelly (Led2Zep), from FishExplorer.COM, stopped by to chat, always good to get time on the bank with friends, old and new. It was great to spend some time with Daris, chatting on the bank - we shared stories, rig information and had a great few hours together. One of these days I am sure to get a line out there, deliberately in search of a monster cat ! As I have said many times before, it's the friends I spend time on the bank with, whether I catch fish, they catch, or we blank, that is important for me in my fishing. It's not the MA captures, the state records, it's that shared time with friends or family, that stays in my memory the longest... Hope you enjoy the episode... Tight-Lines,John
