Wow! Not a lot of activity in Washington

Maybe everyone’s “Gone Fishing”.

Hello, Is there anybody in there?

Just nod if you can hear me.

Is there anybody home?

sorry... couldn’t help it. 

I’ve fished salmon and steelhead most of my life and I’m sort of tiring from it believe it or not. That may have something to do with commercial fishing for them most of my life. Hmm.., or the salmon gods decided I’ve filled my quota. 

Anyway... I’m new to the Vancouver area and saw a couple fisherman from the Ukraine near a public boat ramp at Silver Lake with a 5-gallon bucket full of carp. The guy even hooked and landed a 10+ pounder as I was talking to him. He just barely caught the butt of his pole before the fish dragged it into the lake. Bait: Off the grocery shelf Canned Sweet Corn

In short... I’m hooked but haven’t hooked one yet. I’m all in. I’d love to meet up with some locals to carp and bag a few for dinner. I found a few recipes, deboning methods, and intend to eat at least part of what I catch.

There are certainly a few folk in the NW around WA & OR. 

I'll see if I can send them here to get in touch with you.

I live in Auburn WA, originally from the UK, I was an avid carp fisherman back in the day in England. Looking to start targeting some carp here in washington. Feel free to message me if you want to fish together or have any insight into good places to fish.
