Today's session.

Recommended Posts

Hello folks. I used to be a member here about 6-7 years ago and in my long absence can't remember my old user name so I created a new one.

Here's a pic from this afternoons haul. We landed 4 fish (no scale so weight isn't included or important). My brother is visiting from Scotland and as the guy who got me into fishing (pike) I wanted to give him his first carp experience.

I also brought my 13 along who was too young back when we used to go to catch anything other than brim. Both of them got into their first carp and I think have caught the instant addition.

We had several other runs but I lost them trying to teach the little guy how to either set the hook or keep the fish in constant pressure because of the barbless hooks.

Anyway. I just wanted to introduce myself and share a fantastic day.

P.s I've been blanking for the last 6 weeks so this was a huge turn around today.

Cheers

Steven

Welcome and congrats on taking your son and brother carping. If you will look at the CAG calendar, there will be a fish-in at Salacoa Creek State Park, SAturday, October 10th. Be good to have you and share some time with you and your son. Will your brother still be here to fish?

The park is east of Calhoun, GA on Redbud Road, GA Hwy 156. There is a small fee for parking. The fish-in is sponsored by the state chair and someone who has become a good friend, needmotime2fish.

Thanks Bob. Slower today with just 3 fish. One at 15.5lbs and another at 16lbs. No complaints as everyone around us caught nothing (fishing for bass). The complete change of tactics yesterday seems to be working. Between the two days we've had several takes but they managed to eject the bait before we could even pick up the rod. Making a few adjustments to my end tackle tonight to hopefully put and end to that.

Cheers for now.

Hey skeet. I've been messaging back and forth with Barry over the last week. I'm not sure if I'll make it to the fish-in but I'm sure I'll run into you guys real soon.

Keep in touch with him as we get together two or three times a year in GA to fish for carp. He also comes up to TN to fish. We have a great spot where we have had some good luck with carp and buffs.

John (skeet3t) and I thoroughly enjoy our bank time AS WELL AS our planning sessions via phone and e-mail. One of the great things about CAG -- it forms friendships!

For those interested in the fish-in, John is correct. The park is roughly 10 miles east of Calhoun on Red Bud Road (I-75 exit 315). But if you're heading north on I-75 from the Atlanta area, turn north on US-411 (I think it's exit 293), and go about 20 miles through Ranger, GA. About a mile past Ranger, turn left on Red Bud Rd. The park entrance is 3 or 4 miles, on the left.
