What an unusual evening!!!........I have a creek two minutes by drive, from the house, with one nice pool at a bend in the creek,.......hooked this 5lbr, and had 2 other poles out. To avoid tangling I reel in the other rods, and this time, WHAM, something hit the corn I was reeling in, so I played both fish-landed this long nosed gar first-put it in the sling, then netted the carp!.....I focused on gar a couple years ago using rope lures, and have caught short and long nosed gar which are common here, but its one of my most unusual doubles!- usually a green sunfish hits the other rod(s) I'm reeling.........2 more carp (1-5 and 6-4), a soft-shell turtle and a red eared slider turtle was also caught.........that's why ya love fishing-you just never know!!.....

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...................
