I was setting along the bank watching the carp swim around, They were coming in to were I was fishing and been all day. I Love to get them in close so that I can watch them cut the water with their fins you know. It is so cool to get to watch that and when they eat your fait witch he is doing now. They will do a head stand and if you get them that close you can see the bait com out of their gills. That is something that you will never forget i tell you. Well he took off with one of them t6here reels and i have to set the hook. he is taking line like it is notting. I have got to stop him from that. I got him to trun to me now and he is coming in.
You will fine out that carp are some of the hardest fighting fish that you will ever go after. They will not give upI i tell you. You will also fine out in time that they are hard and smart to carch. I have read in books were that carp were just as smart as bass and I believe this for I have fish for them 47 years now. It does not tale them long to learn a bait and you habe to change something about to catch them a gene. I just change baits and go from there.
Size is another thing that gets me after them with them in the 20 all the way up to the 60lb marl. Truly making them worth going after are at less for this man. I have got a good bit in the 20 over the years and only one in the 30. It was a 33.4 lber that I won everthing with that night fishing. It ended up being my best ever night fishing as far as wining jackpops and jars and hours. A night i will never forget.
The baits that you find on here are the baits that I have come up with over the years. You will fine baits that I have use and got a lot of carp with over the years. I will have new baits for us to try out at the river and the Pay-lakes.
Be sure to look at the baits, stories, galleryand NC record buffalo carp and world record womens and mens you just might like it if you give it a look see. It has some funny stories to be read and some good bait to be made.You have some nice fish to look at too in the gallery.
