A few hours out yesterday.....

Recommended Posts

ALL,

AHH YASS coney island whitefish. Caught a 3 - 4 pound carp years ago that had swallowed one perhaps as much as a year earlier.  The creature was totally mis-shaped. Chunks of the whitefish were coming out of every orifice of its body. It was a total mess. Couldn't put it back in the water, to gross.  Spent the next half hour digging a hole with a teaspoon. Got the dam thing buried but I was so disgusted I gathered up and went home.

All those wasted years you spent trying to make the 'perfect' carp bait Phone, and I keep telling you that they will eat anything! :yucky:

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John

With the lockdown being lifted for a few sports etc, and with fishing being one of them I had a few hours on one of the clubs still waters today.

I used a rod and reel I use on the river whilst trotting and it worked a treat on the still water just the same :).

i caught countless carp and surprisingly, lots of chub!!

Tigger,

PROUD OF YOU MY GOOD MAN ! extremely healthy looking fish - that last carp. just judging relative to your reel - about 12 lb. Your equipment speaks for itself. What line and end tackle? Of course, for me over here, 12lb test and freeling #4 hook.

I think the tackle shops are shut round here Martin so no maggots unfortunately,  I just used brow bread on the surface and popped up at various depths.

I knew there were chub in this venue but had no idea there is so many, caught a lot, all varying in size from about an estimated 3lb to 5 plus.

Thank Phone :).

i think you may be right with your 12lb estimate, I didn't weigh anything though.

iI used 8lb daiwa sensor and a size 12 hook.  I used a hair with a bait band tied to it and large pieces of bread.  The rod is 1lb test but easily tames those carp.  No need for big heavy pokers which only damage their mouths.
