Caught my first carp today

Recommended Posts

It all started a few months ago when I came across a video of Austin catching some carp at pointe mouille. After doing some research and buying and some pre tied hooks and a sbomb, I hit banks with many failed attempts. After talking with Austin at sterling state park I found these forums and have learned a ton, It still took several weeks to land my first carp after some hook pulls and the carp getting off within feet of shore. Today was my lucky day! I'm definetly addicted!

Thanks Austin for all the help, and Brian for all the tips, and Bill for selling me some awesome poles. The bait runners made a huge difference. no way I could've caught anything without their help.

Not sure on the wait but I'd say atleast 10 pounds

Thanks guys! I had about 5 runs total the first one I had right at shore but he got off as I was trying to net him myself. And two others got off right away.

Good job. Carp fishing is very addicting if you get into it. The day before my session I can't sleep at night and I'm in my garage for hrs looking everything over and making bait. It's an obsession.

Thanks guys! Yeah Austin the biggest one I caught was very thick and I didn't even know he was on the line, the line was pulling to the left but it never pulled hard enough for my alarms to beep. I thought maybe a turtle had grabbed the line.
