Posted 06 May 2012 - 04:16 PM
During the dayFriday it was very slow....each of us caught one a peice this biggest of the batch being a 21.4 common landed by me.
IMAG0420 (361x640).jpg 175.33K 6 downloadsTony had to take off that afternoon and wouldnt be back till the next day, GREAT! More fish for me!!!!
So now It is just Justin and I and it appears that my rein of monster carp terror is over as Justin is steadily reeling in fish and up until this point his biggest was one just above 20lbs....(notice I say up until this point)......
Saturday at 5 am I get that dreaded pitiful MEEP coming from my alarm. I turned over in my sleep and thought you have GOT to be kidding, another one?? As usual I ignore it. Justin comes and asks me if I wanted him to reel it in ( propbablly was annoying the hell out of him) and I said yes. I roll out of bed and walk up beside him as he picks up my rod and instead of reeling in the offeding catfish he turns and says to me, now that you are up reel in your own cat. So I turn off the baitrunner and set the hook and OMG....NOT a KITTY. After a lil battle and lots of surprise I bring in a sweet 29.8. Thank Goodness I thought I had lost my touch! 147.JPG 179.88K 1 downloads
Not to be outdone though bout an hour later Justins alarm is full blast like I have never heard, he is hurdling objects and stumps in single bounds, snatches up the pole, sets the hook and battles the beast of his lifetime....he has been fishing 20 plus years and FINALLY he has landed not only his PB but one hell of a whopper...31.11 IMAG0433 (361x640).jpg 177.4K 0 downloads
IMAG0438 (361x640).jpg 164.12K 0 downloadsThru out the day Justin brings in several more, nothing over 20 lbs but nothing under 15 either.
Tony shows back up for the final night (this figures, Justin and I are sunburned and have been under attack by mosquitos for 2 days, have chummed and baited every inch of this swim, the fish are there and feeding like crazy) Early in the Am Tony Lands a lovely 26.10 186 (640x480).jpg 129.22K 0 downloads a new PB for him 187 (640x480).jpg 136.87K 0 downloads and he hadn't even come down from that adrenaline rush before....DRUMROLL please.....BEEEEEEEEP. Fightin the fish, getting it out of snags, finally getting it up to the net and WHAT IN THE HECK??? a KOI!!!! 193 (640x480).jpg 232.18K 0 downloads 194 (480x640).jpg 231.1K 0 downloads 196 (640x480).jpg 250.56K 0 downloads
