  1. So.........had to work this am but had a couple hours to run to the creek before I had to be back......and caught these 5 fish-all average creek carp but a nice day to fish!!! Hope everyone has a great and safe Thanksgiving!!!! MO
  2. So...........the last nice day for awhile here- temps in the 50s, so, just had to go creekin it!! Another new hole and very sunny out!. Well within 6 minutes I was surprised by this little channel cat-usually they are buried in the mud, but not this little guy, then followed that by 8 straight carp, including this nice 12lbr. Of the 8 caught, I landed 5- two hook pulls and one broke off in a snag. All in 2 hours! Gonna be a FFF spot if it doesn't freeze or flood!!!.....go fishin!- We only have a couple more weeks before things start freezin up!! MO
  3. Ummm, grass carp, common carp (mirror, leather, etc.), black carp and all the Asian carp are considered invasive- not native to the U.S. Invasive species that cause natural or economic harm but I think it depends on the definition of ""harm". One persons "harm" may not be the same as another. None of these are native fishes. Common carp are now "naturalized"- a species that has spread into the wild and has sustainable reproduction. They were brought here a century ago to "feed the masses" but have spread across most of the US-the various Asian carp will do the same. I agree, non-"fish" people
  4. In addition to my knees and back creakin, been creekin it in prep for the FFF!.... yesterday went to one of my original creek holes- a bend in the creek that collects all the carp for several hundred yards. First time fishing it this year.... And- its the same hole there are number of carp on the small side- 4-5 lbs like these two, and caught no grassies, though I've only caught a couple here. The largest common was a 13lbr around midnight one night. But, its secluded, close to the house and wildlife abounds- raccoon tracks from a night of fishing themselves, a 4 point buck just above me on
  5. Creek walkin looking for FFF spots today and found another new hole- this one is a straight line hole below a large pool where I've caught carp before but never fished this stretch. Like the majority of the creeks here, there are vertical clay cliffs which terminate in a clay shelf about a foot under water, extending varied widths into the water. These harbor large numbers of carp along the base. If you can cast right along the shelf, youre in business!! Today I used 30g method leads, one with strawberry panko, one with orange panko, and one rod with a simple korda krank hook baited with sweet
  6. So, a couple weeks ago I was reeling in my rods after a couple hour session. My go to big rods and reels are 3 9ft stalker rods outfitted with Daiwa Emcast 3500 BR reels with 12 or 15lb mono line. Well, the third rod handle was slipping while reeling and when I looked, the reel handle cap was cracked and subsequently fell off the screw holding the handle on......arrrghhhhhh- these are my first carp rods and reels and the carp and I beat the daylights out of them!.........The reels are not available anywhere, ANYWHERE!- BCT, Mikes reel repair, Amazon, Etsy, Ebay, the guy down the street, the ot

MO
  11. Hello all!! Haven't been on the forum as much; still fishing but expanding my horizons- doing some river fishing, boat fishing, etc. and multiple species in multiple ways- even completed an IGFA bass grand slam (3 bass species in a day) and a bass super grand slam (4 species of bass in a day) to add to my trout grand slam, but still true to carp-even christened the boat as "MOCarper" 🤣🤣. This year I am recording every fish I've caught and pushing 700 right now, so possibly a 1000 for the year.... Well, anyway, still catchin fishes; Hope everyone is ok!. Stay healthy, Stay Covid
