Hello all!!. Weeeelllllll, we had all-time historic flooding in KC so it put the clamp on creek fishing, so I had no choice but to fish flooded ponds and focused on tying more hair-rigs, which I just hadn't refined and been successful on ( I've caught a total of 3, yes 3! carp on hair rigs in the past year and have been very disheartened, but this week has been different!.....One afternoon I caught 6 carp,(ranging from 2-6lbs) this 2lb 15oz goldfish, 2 snapping turtles, and 3 channel catfish, -one half on a hair rig, and the others on the subtle bit technique including 2 doubles! (cat/carp and goldfish/carp)......then, yesterday caught this lone 2lb 13oz carp on a hair, and today, finally, this last pic of a nice carp- 14-1, (with a squared tail) on the hair, plus one catfish and one smaller carp (~2lbs) that I didn't get a picture of........the method was the same- 30g ribbed method feeder packed with a combo of panko, sweetcorn, sweetcorn juice, and strawberry jello, with a very short (3-4") hook link, a piece of fake corn with a piece of sweetcorn and the eye buried in the pack...........worked well and gave me some confidence as I shift to nighttime lake fishing!!.......appreciate the forums and advice -it all helps!!!!
So....just before the rain ( again!) I fished my new swim- caught 4 channels up to 4lbs, lost a carp in a snag-hook pull, then caught this 12-14, but as I walked to the creek I found one pond had been flooded with carp- dozens at the surface gulping.......near dark I went to the pond and caught another channel immediately, landed this 7-4 and lost TWO more carp to straight hook pulls!.....Hadn't had that many carp in a session get away!!.........I usually change line ties every 3rd fish and hooks when they dull but these seemed ok...............waiting for the rains to stop- no creek fishing for a bit- switching to lakes!........
