Carp Are More Lovers Than Eaters But The Way To A Carps Heart Is Throu

so many carp not eating...just making love
its frustrating to fish an area with so much action just not for your bait....
friday night blanked...
saturday night had the two largest carp i have ever had on and lost both of them....
was watching them graze through my baited swim sediment covering them so they almost were ghostly
the lights from the hotel windows illumenated them...i put my bait in the area where the light cascaded over the water.
but even with all the chaos and excitement of the heavy hook ups i still blanked.
sunday my confidence low i went extra mentally prepared.....first five hours were not looking good..
i had carp eating my bait sporadically but no grazers no hits...
5:30 i was moving my bait and it was outta the water...i saw a carp peek out under my feet from under the boardwalk
and the sneaky cow she was eating my bait from the cover of the floor beneath my feet....i slid the bait in as slowly and stealthily as i could and she took it after a couple minutes....then it was like someone openned the gates for the horses at the racetrack...she burst forth on an unstoppable run....
she was a lotta fun ...pure spirit....i was in awe of her greatness
we broke my net handle ...her and i as i hoisted her up outta the water....
she was a beauty worth waiting for....

"The unspeakable in pursuit of the inedible"
What has been said about me. "Fact is, your only goal on these boards, is to spread CAG, and to make people feel good about carp fishing and releasing them back into the water..................................."

the carp sat night were way bigger but i fear if i am gonna land those they have to be taken at night
i would have to bulk up from 6lb test mono to 10lb mono or braid.......
a little more experience with the 30lbs carp is required i think before i have any hope of out foxing the bison ghost carp that graze the harbours at night.
i am already learning that landing larger carp is not just muscling them in....i think you have to mentally defeat them into submission....if they don't mentally give up
at that size you just cannot force them into the net....i think i'll bring my muskie cradle next time....
i have seen defeat and hopelessness in the last 3 carp i have landed.
