  1. Well, it's been a long tough fall, the victory coffee could not keep me from being sick for a month and out of work. Finally back on my feet and found the time to put together a new episode of CarpQuest. So, it's time to break out your java, heat up the water, grab a huge mug, sit back and enjoy our latest episode. In this session I travel up to northern Colorado and fished with two anglers new to carp fishing, Ryan and Bleu. It's one of the things I love about CarpQuest, the opportunity it provides me to meet so many passionate anglers. It was a great day, good conversation, lots of commons in the net and finally a new PB grass carp for me landed. What an amazing session. Both Ryan and Bleu continued with their carp fishing, with Bleu winning the TLO Carp Tournament at the end of this year, and Ryan placing in the previous one. What a great couple of guys, passionate and dedicated to their fishing. Hope you enjoy ! John CarpQuest
  2. In this weeks new episode of CarpQuest a short session at a favorite venue produced a huge surprise capture, a new PB grass carp for me. Yet this capture was bitter sweet. A few months later the lake was all but totally drained to repair an inlet. As the lake was being refilled a local angler spotted the corpses of a dozen or more big carp in the shallows. Such a sad end to so many beautiful fish that had called this water home for over a decade. Before the work commenced some of the lakes inhabitants, hopefully including a few of the big carp, were relocated by Colorado Parks and Wildlife to another lake in the city. We were only aware of a pod of around 30 or so carp that once lived here. We will return to the lake in Spring of 2017 to see if even just a couple of these majestic fish may have survived. Nature is always full of surprises ! Hope you enjoy. John
  3. Hi all, Nothing fantastic, but just a nice afternoon fishing today....had two poles; one with light-weight (two split shots) sweet corn, one with oat/corn juice/corn/vanilla pack bait......within 5 minutes had this 9lb grass carp on the sweet corn, then this 8lb 4oz common on the sweet corn pole (not a hit on the oats), lost a larger fish, then this 8lb 12oz common on the same pole....I switched to both poles with sweet corn, but only one pole had the hits-tied the same, weighted the same (two round split-shot 4" up the line)....both poles 8lb mono, identical reels (Pflueger Trions), no alarms-just watching the VERY subtle bite..(any wind and I'd miss every fish), one pole with all the hits 5'6" and the other 5'....cast to within 2ft of each other and on elevated bank stakes......can't explain and don't really care, but...what if I had decided only the one rod?....my creek fishing observations of no carp would have been justified.....this is at least a 12', maybe 15' deep hole and I fished at the edge of the fast-moving inflow (X)......the farther spot (A) is a curved dead-end which the inflow bypasses....maybe my back-up FFF 2017?....very secluded area!!!......saw many breaching carp just in front of the tree-stump, which is inaccessible slack water..i can cast there but the current will pull my line away I think....thoughts on fishing that spot?.Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!!....
  4. Chum

    Hello everyone, Well I am a newbie to this carp fishing and have picked up on some very awesome techniques. I am still very stumped none the less. I have been doing well catching commons out of etowah river know how to locate them and chum them to my area even caught some small mouth buffalos. My greatest task at hand is the Grasser. I have done well catching on average 8-10 pounders but am stumped on locating the monsters in this 5 acre pond I fish. One question at hand is when a spot is blown up how close is too close to relocate? Second question is what is a good mix fory oatmeal for chumming/ method? I've been doing a very simple mollases, corn syrup and grits mix finding that old fashioned trumps quick oats bar none. I'm ultimately trying to find a good smell or combination of smells to attract the big 30+lbrs here. What might some good for mixing into my boilies? Or what might I use simply? Haven't tries the top water action yet. That's soon to come. Stale fruit loops my daughter won't eat them and neither will I so I'm doing that maybe tomorrow!

  6. Grass carp

    I have a big pond next to my house with huge grass carp. If I have to guess they are around 50 pounds. I have tried everything for bait and have had no luck. I have spent over two years trying to catch one out of my pond with no success. Any help??
  7. As you can see from my signature that I lack a grassie to make the quartet complete. Do we have them in Tennessee? Preferred baits?
  8. 6 weeks of working with DELL to fix/replace my old video editing system that melted down... almost literally... but, the system is fixed, the s/w re-installed, and CarpQuest is BACK in production! So, finally, here we go... CarpQuest Episode Released - Season 2, Episode 14 9/14/14 - Colorado, south of Pueblo In this episode of CarpQuest we take a family picnic down south to a lake near Pueblo. Would the rumors of grass carp at this venue prove true ? Tight-Lines,John
  9. Few pics...

    Here are few old and new pics from the past months... The fish weight between 15lb and 39lb which is a new pb grass carp for me.. I have decided to cut down the pack bait and strictly use boilies this year.. I have been using K-1 Tutty Fruity and Pineapple mix which is a concept and sweet corn flavored boilies.. Strictly baiting only boilies and using PVA sticks woth crushed boilies, sizes 12mm and 16mm soluble and hard boilies.. Enjoy... The bait and baiting in action... And some more fish !!! The most beautiful thing of fishing... The nature and wilderness !!!
