Thread: Carp!

  1. Default Re: Carp!

    One thing the book mentions which I have heard in the past is that in Europe and most other countries Carp are highly respected, Mostly in America has carp been given "trash fish" status.

    True. I fish the CZ every year. Essentially everyone who fishes still water is a carp angler. Flyfishing for trout is popular too, of course.

I really was trying to avoid them so I walked further out toward the rock outcroppings and started throwing a grey clouser with my 7wt.
    I found a shoal of 15 to 20lb carp yesterday in a NYC reservoir. They were feeding too. I was boat fishing and spooked them, unfortunately. It's hard to wait around for them to return when the bass are biting so well.....

    We're just beginning the LM spawn here. Carp I think haven't started yet.

    Well, has any body gotten out? They are in full swing here and we have been chasing them. Thurs. I hooked 2 and ended up with a broken tippet and a large carp scale. Sat. a friend and I headed out for a carp derby. We both landed 4 fish each, my biggest being 23 lbs and my buddy just missed the money with a 25.8 lber. I did win some some nice stuff in the raffle. Sun. I took my wife and 2 little kids out and caught 2 and shot a bunch with the bow. I pulled my 5 year old son around in a pontoon boat while I waded and he loved it. This spring while chasing carp I have tore a 1 inch gash in my Simms waders, broke my 8 weight in the middle of the butt section and I had one jump with an arrow in it and land on a pontoon and punctured it. They are tough on tackle and man they are fun!!
    Lets go huntin, fishin, drinkin or sumthin!!

    Got out a couple of times with friends and had some half decent luck. Not bad seeing as the season is only 2 weeks old.

    Length was 34 inches, girth was 22 inches and the weight was 24 1/2 pounds.This shot gives you a better idea of how big the Carp actually is. Gene had a riot.
