  1. Got some in red. Needing to use them as cutting back on the stuff I carry to the bank for fishing.
  2. Lil Bird, I remember Jerry and the barber walking along the Olentangy River with Jerry's weinie dog having a good time, skipping ahead of the guys. I recall that, at the time, that someone would actually fish for carp. Will look at the link. Thanks. Our farm is gone; was on the SE corner of US 23 and OH 665. The dairy was on my uncle's farm which is now horse barns for the racetrack.
  3. My local venue has common carp and SM buffs. They are caught on the same rigs, whether a hair rig or feeder cage setup. Recently, a friend fished there and caught 15 buffs to one carp. Later this year, it will be the reverse. Hard to separate them if they are both in the same place, IMHO. It was discovered that buffs are very light on the baits. Line movement is a straighten-tighten-slack without setting off an alarm. Rarely will one take off and set the alarm screaming. As a result, we set the hook when the line straightens. Our hookup rate went up tremendously. We don't care if it's a buff or carp, they are fun to catch and more funner to release to grow.😁
  4. Power Pro 65 lb.- no stretch but not as abrasive resistant as mono. My hair is a braid of about 10 lb. if I recall.
  5. I've never tossed out raw corn. Interesting. Where is the article?
  6. Mo, good start for a fish fry...excluding the carp, of course. One of the best meals I had was crappie filets baked in coals in January. Water temp was about 38-40 degrees.
  7. Good idea. I have an idea that would work. Need to look for photos from the past.
  8. Was looking for the river to be fishable but TVA is spilling through Chickamauga Dam in anticipation of the 3 inches of rain expected Sunday and Sunday night.
  9. Put a plastic pipe in the water with no holes or food. Algae will grow on the pipe. This attracts minnows and other critters. Then the predatory fish will come around. Farmers in KY used to toss a square bale of hay in their ponds to do the same thing. The same thing is done with junk cars and concrete in saltwater.
  10. They are already gone.
  11. I'll join you in welcoming John Castellese! Looking for photos of giant fish from y'all. I have a digital camera and love it. Looking to upgrade to one with interchangeable lenses. I download the photos to my laptop and can view them on the screen. Have several hundred photos. Part of the fun is experimenting along with reading the manual and a book by a professional photographer/teacher. BTW, I have a Canon T-70; was told it was worth absolutely nothing. Retired photographer said he had some film cameras that he couldn't give away.
  12. Film? What is that? Congrats on a good day and an outstanding capture.
  13. Good to fish with the kids, no matter what species. This could start a friendly competition among the three of you- who catches the biggest carp.
  14. it will be real low. IMHO, it won't be fishable until the lake is at summer pool and, even then, it is shallow for a ways out from the waterline. Check it out, though. You might go to the dam. Need to have you show me where to fish below the dam. Never fished Chickamauga Dam before.
