  1. I recently moved and my new "home" lake is 5 minutes from my house. I have caught 16 grass carp so far ranging from 22lbs to the largest one at 49lbs 3ozs. All have been caught using a hair rig with artificial corn. I use a mix of oats, bread, and sweet corn which I ball up on my lead and then throw out several balls after I cast out. I fish in 2-4 ft of water 25-40 ft from shore. All have been caught between 7 and 10:00 in the morning as my fishing time is unfortunately limited.
  2. Thanks Bill, I appreciate your explanation.
  3. First time for me, what is discovery month?
  4. After getting blanked for about 4 hours and feeding more turtles than I care to remember in my usual spot, I switched to a shallow(1 1/2 - 2 feet) area across the lake where I saw a few carp breaching the surface. I hooked this 18lb 10oz common the old fashion way. I used sweet corn on a #4 wide gape hook over a small area baited with more sweet corn and Nash micro pellets. Free line with a small shot a foot or so up the line.
  5. Welcome, just started carpin last season myself. I'm not in your immediate area(about 2hours south) but would be happy to share any info that I have learned with you. I'm in Eastchester.
  6. Great pics, especially the one with the umbrella, crazy looking sky.
  7. My new personal best caught using a pencil float and corn. 18lbs 13ozs. I landed this on June 14th at about 8:30 in the morning at a small lake about 10 minutes from my home.
  8. Wow, great day, thanks for sharing.
  9. Sounds good to me. I go fishing with my 11 year old just about every week.
  10. There's a diver under the boat hooking up the same fish over and over.
  11. I found this a few days ago. http://www.worldrecordcarp.com/2015/05/new-world-record-carp-from-euro-aqua-at.html
