  1. Nice day!- pretty mirror

    Nice day!- went to new swim which produced a 17 lbr a couple weeks ago behind a snag, but then floods moved in and no more snag......still, caught 5 carp today, 13-8, 10-3, 7-8, 5-7, and the last fish a 10-4oz mirror!...beautiful fish with symmetrical pattern--these still remain the prettiest carp I've caught anywhere-not sure why that is.....thanks for looking!!
  2. Another swim

    ..............well, had another opportunity to explore some swims this afternoon, and before long, albeit a little slow, caught these 4 commons, three channel catfish and one turtle; all in 2 and one half hours of fishing, just before the rains moved in.....seem to be mostly same age-class fish, as they were all very close in size and weight; one fish much longer than the rest though.............always looking!!! o
  3. Went to find some new swims, hoping the historic flooding in KC placed carp in some nearby ponds; some creeks had obviously flooded the ponds but cant find the fish............so, I found a new creek swim and WOW, in just a few hours, I caught 5 carp; 8-11, 11-3, 4-12, 15-11 and a great 17-0!!, some of the prettiest carp I've ever seen-great gold and red color, though none fought as hard as usual-I'm thinking they were fatigued from fighting the flood currents........saw dozens in this swim, which is maybe 100yards long and 20 yards across, but only 6-7 feet deep...........subtle bite technique...........trying to keep the same face.....
  4. Locating a carp swim

    It's me again, Margaret. I have a spot that has carp in it. It is a mud bottom and is about 4 feet deep in the creek that flows through it. It is dry during the winter draw-down for TVA and is off the main Hiwassee River. I'll admit that it is a while since I have been there; seven miles from home- no excuse. I have seen carp cruising in it. Would it be worth baiting with boiled corn for two or three days and then fishing it? I could use my smaller rod with a baitrunner on it. Your help/advice is appreciated. I can't draw a map as I have a very short memory at my age.
  5. Getting ready!

    The last couple of weeks have been hectic as I'm getting the house ready for new carpet. Painting, removing the old carpet, shuffling furniture around the house, etc. have taken all my time. Missed opening day of turkey season but still time left. Spring is when a guy's thoughts turn to..................CARP! What else is there? I noticed that TVA is raising the lake levels which means carp will be moving into the shallows to spawn. Also, dry areas are now places that are easy to access for carp. Have to take inventory and get my stuff ready to bait a couple of swims close to home. Also, want to make contact with other CAGers here in east TN. So much water, so little time!
