6 Fish Over 20Lbs This Morning

Recommended Posts

With the cooler nights we've been having the carp bite is starting to pick up. I fished this morning and ended up landing 12 fish, 6 over 20 pounds. I lost the heaviest fish of the day. It took about 100 yards of line out on the first run, I worked it half way back, then it went on another run and bent my hook straight. The fish were caught SPL style with an oat based pack, ON THE PUFF! The bite should only get better as the water cools off. I'm looking forward to seeing what we pull out of the river this fall.

The lighter one was only 17 but I thought it was a nice looking fish so i took a pic. Didn't get a pic of the fattest fish of the day and one of the other 20s because I had doubles. Here's a bigger one from earlier in the week.

Some great fish Matt. No PERKINS hat?

I'm probably going with Miguel on Saturday, I'll dig up the Perkins hat for that session. Hopefully I'll get a Perkins 40.

Haven't talked to Attila about that but it's a possibility . If not this fall then definitely next spring. I'm gaining a lot more confidence in the puff...maybe after a few thousand more hours of using them on the bank I'll be a puff pro!

It's great your bait and pickups are working. Especially since Pack and Puff only catch small fish.. :swimminfish:

That session supports the theory that puffs catch larger carp, who'd a thunk it?

Sorry marcus couldn't resist. :party0012icon:
