Finally got in a 4 - 5 hr  carp fishing session.  The only reason I mention it is because it was a rousing success.  Three lovely ladies (I presume) graced the bank at over 25 lbs with one in the low 30's.  The 30 was a tough river fish as 46 inches.


I might add - in all the years of searching for the "perfect" bait all three fell to soft - dog training pellets on the hook.  At 33% fishmeal protein they worked wonders.  So much for the "inventor" in me.  Unlike most dog foods they sink like a rock. 


Was going back today but the river is up a couple feet after some pretty heavy rain up North.


Don't tell my wife.  Went by myself but to a VERY safe and well populated swim.




Edit: pellets are flat discs smaller than a dime and 3/8th inch thick.  First time - but until further notice I RECOMMEND them.  They come in a zillion flavors by an equal number of manufacturers.
