Obsessed Carper

Obsessed Carper (5/6)

  1. One must start somewhere. My wife wishes, after looking at my carp gear, that I was still starting! Many thanks for the photos and the kind words about Phone. Curious, anyone know how he got his "name?"
  2. There are only two FB pages that I look at. This one and one connected to a local photography club. I was told to get on FB several years ago by a member of a club I was affiliated with. First FB view was the wife of a member who said she was going to the grocery store. Who cares?
  3. Keep us posted on Phone's status. I would like know what he has forgotten about carp fishing.
  4. It's a bit far to drive for a fish-in. Curious- are there similar groups in the UK? Cheers.
  5. Good afternoon! Needing to contact John Hooper to check on a venue in East Tennessee. He and his daughter, Cheyenne, attended my fish-in on July, 2019. Also, is a member list available to me as Tennessee chair? Anticipating a fish-in in about September. Your help is appreciated. Reply when convenient. Tight lines and screaming alarms!

  6. Good point for protection of common carp. A parallel fact is for alligator gar.
  7. Best wishes for Phone and the family. Chemo isn't fun, to say the least.
  8. WTG! Best to our neighbors in Canada! This is an indication that the common carp is being accepted as a game fish. Wish the states here would do likewise.
  9. Flatten the barb. This makes it much easier to remove the hook. Been doing this for years. Over stressed stripers release a lot of lactic acid, if I recall, that can lead to the demise of the fish.
  10. Other fish have been caught on boilies and field corn. The hook regulation just doesn't make a bit of sense to me. Only fished the South Shore of LI one time with my uncle. We used bloodworms. BTW, we blanked that day. It was preparation for carp fishing.
  11. Interesting and confusing. How do they know if I'm fishing the Hudson River for catfish or another species and use a regular hook? I could put s sign on the line- No striped bass allowed.
  12. Or let them reel one in when the rod tip dances or the alarm screams.
  13. I think that you will find that very, very few people deliberately fish for carp. In the past, the only carp caught was by people fishing for something else, mainly catfish. If there are catfish and bluegill, you should find carp. We find this at my local venue all the time. Put out some bait, if legal, and fish. Start a trend and catch carp!
  14. Tennessee River. Just look for open bank space. Check local regulations as to overnight fishing, etc. Good luck.
