  1. The grassy point turned out to be a great place to teach some of our work place friends how to catch carp. The weather was fine and we could all fish close enough to help each other and socialize. My friend Dustin and I were the first to arrive. Dustin is a catfisherman who has already caught some big blue cats this year. Brad and John arrived shortly after us. Brad's friends from work(David and Curtis) joined us and we got ready to catch carp. I had prebaited the area about noon on Friday. We saw splashes just outside the baited area. I cast past that bait and splashes trying to reach deeper water. A few minutes later after observing yet another splash I decided to recast closer to the chum area. I put on fresh grits, cast a shorter distance and set the rod on the pod. Before I could attach the hanger the line went buzzing off the reel. I fought the fish and soon had the first carp of the day. Brad gave his buddies some lessons in bait making and tackle handling. David got the next carp on one of Brad's rods. We soon had a double on, and David had the bigger fish. His fish was not only the larger one it also was a fully scaled mirror! I believe this was his first carp. The buffs started to get into our baits. John probably caught the first one, but he is skilled at avoiding the camera when he catches a buff. Curtis landed a buff and got slimed! John was happy when he finally got his first Kingston mirror. Curtis landed another slimy critter...this time it was a channel cat. It was great to see the mirrors come in. I even landed one myself. David and Curtis got another double with Curtis getting more slime. Curtis also caught a carp but I didn't get a picture of it. We were pretty busy with both buffs and carp. Dustin the catman tried to catch catfish with his rods. Unfortunately his bluegill cutbait did not get touched. I set him up with a paylake rig on his rod complete with a puff and grits. He soon had a run but lost it apparently to a faulty swivel he had used. I got him to take care of my rods while I was away and he hooked up with a decent mid teen carp. Curtis manned the net. Dustin with his 16 pounder. All our new carpers left us some time after noon, but they all seemed to have enjoyed learning how we fish. I hope to give Dustin more carping lessons in the future. John, Brad and I stayed a couple more hours to fight some buffs, boats, and an occassional carp. Here 3 boats were getting uncomfortably close to Brad's rods. I believe John was the buff king Saturday, catching more of them than the rest of us did. Finally, Brad caught a nice common to close out our day. Kingston once again gave us a successful fish-in.
