I'd say happy memorial day like everyone else-its a vacation day, start of summer, etc. BUT, we should take at least a somber moment to remember those who have allowed us the freedom to fish for carp, decide where and how to live and be the greatest country on the planet!!!!!.........so, simply, Memorial Day-thank you for serving!!!.........

So.........while I had just set my rigs a couple days ago, I noted some discreet ripples near shore, so I stalked closer and found a single goldfish lazily swimming, so i attempted to catch it. It wasn't afraid and kept along the shoreline, ebbing back and forth with each ripple. i carefully placed my method pack and hair close to where i anticipated the fish to go, and after only a couple minutes, it grabbed the corn (almost as big as it was) and flipped the whole rig onto a shallow rock!. before I could lift the rod, it slipped back into the water, where I easily netted it. Unfortunately, the fish didn't register on the scale. It was a significant capture!- only my third goldfish, and first that wasn't gluten free!!......I carefully released it, but it didn't swim away; it rolled several times, then settled back into the abyss, but later swam away (or was eaten by bluegills ) ...not sure the video comes through...........enjoy your memorial day weekend-thanks to all who have let us fish for carp!!!....
