  1. I limit my FB views to five FB groups and they all have to do with fishing. A friend told me to sign up on FB when I was the state TU chair. First post...a member's wife was telling she was going to the grocery store. How gives a rodent's rear end? A friend's daughter posted they were going on a 10 day vacation. Her father told her, "Good. Now you have told every burglar within a 100 miles where you will be gone for 10 days so they can clean out everything they can carry."
  2. Spawning? Looking at the tail. Just think how big it is after 10 years!
  3. Can't help specifically but there were several who traveled to Florida for the First Fish Folly. They caught carp and were warm, all at the same time. I think they fished the Apalachicola River just south of the GA state line. I recall seeing an article about them in the NACA magazine- Horace La Favor wrote this in the Winter 2010/2011 issue. Check the archives on the main CAG website. Good carping!
  4. As far as biting, water temps would be a big factor. Here's my advice- go fishing! Good luck!
  5. I would think (scary, isn't it?) that anywhere along the TN River would be possible to catch carp. I have driven from TN across AL on Hwy 72 and see places to fish. However, AL seems to be like TN with very few places to fish from the bank. I recall seeing some parks that might be open enough. Also, places I fish in TN are high and dry right now. Scout around and see what is available. Good luck and let us see some photos of your catches.
  6. Run? Who was chasing you? Thanks for the photos. "And a good time was had by all."
  7. Interesting request. I'm finding now that I creak when playing a fish. Just waiting for something to fall off or break.🤗
  8. As a teacher, I don't think Frank stopped teaching- went from the classroom to bankside where he could teach others to catch carp. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting him but the comments speak highly of the gentleman.
  9. I read a book about a guy who walked on water in a desert climate! MOCarper, nice way to spend the day. You should have saved the place for Discovery Month. Didn't get any fishing tackle for Christmas but anticipation of doing more carping this coming year. Wife and I talked about having two of our grandsons spend the night and be on the bank at sunrise.
  10. If you had landed the Joker part and made a couple of million, just think of all the carp gear you could have bought. Maybe even a chauffeur-driven barrow. Always enjoy your photos...and the smile. Happy holidays!
  11. MOCarper always shows some fantastic photos of carp. He is also sponsored by the America Dental Association.😁
  12. Yes, that, too. Get a catapult (slingshot or flip, depending on where you live). You get good coverage in your swim in just a few minutes. Keep putting out some range cubes (actually range cylinders) periodically to keep them in the area. Good luck!
  13. Most states do not allow transporting fish from one body of water to another unless it is private waters as a farm pond, etc. Prevents spread of disease, etc.
  14. There are as many ways to prepare bait as Carter has little liver pills. I mix deer corn and cracked corn (Jimmy cracks the corn for me but I don't care), add water and any flavor from the grocery shelf and bring to a boil. Take off the burner and let it sit to absorb the water. I stir it occasionally.
  15. Had a good one! Kids and grandkids are all local except for our oldest grandson and his wife. They are roughing it in Puerto Rico. He plays pro baseball and is there through January.
  16. The word blank leads to other words like blankety-blank, etc.
  17. If someone asks what you are doing, hopefully that will be the time you get a run. Let them reel in the carp (hope it's a carp, buff not bad) with you netting it. Place it on the mat, explaining why you have a fin-friendly net and mat. Use the weighing sling, if you have one, and show them the weight. Then challenge them to hang around and try for a new PB! Welcome to GA for your son. Used to live there.
  18. Jennifer, thanks for sharing your memories of your Uncle Bernie. I never had the pleasure or honor to meet him but all the posts show that he was well liked and respected by carp anglers here and abroad. I have the YouTube video on my viewing list.
  19. Interesting but totally devoid of any logic. Example- a comedian said you could get arrested for spitting in a subway in NYC but they don't do anything if you throw up.
  20. How many rods can you put out if trolling for lake trout or salmon?
  21. Nice photos and outstanding fish. The first photo has the sun's rays on the left. Thinking there might be something theological there. A blessing from on High? Thanks for sharing.
  22. Ask and it shall be given. Welcome and good luck fishing the tidal basin. May i suggest joining CAG to get access to get lots of useful information? Youtube is good but On The Bank Training is great! I joined five years ago and never regretted the money...which was well spent in learning carp fishing.
