Smithville Lake Carp Trip Details
Name: Smithville Lake Carp Trip
Created By:turborico
Details:Another good day of fishing in one of my favorite carp spot. I had a couple of misfires but at least I caught one. I started the day off with a splash, the carp took the bait noticed it was hooked and jumped out the water. I run over to the rod try to bring him in and the hook comes out. Act 2 another take but this time the fish almost took my rod over the dock and yes I had my bait runner on, but must have had it turned up too high. Grab the rod and the line breaks, 14# vanish fluorocarbon broken, strong fish. Act 3 the charm, caught this one 7.40# the one in the pictures. Act 4 another good take but once again the line breaks. So it was a good day I could have bagged 4 carp but only got 1, but the action was on. I have to dial in my drag, calm down a little more and stop trying to bully these carp in. What can I say God is good.

You have to enjoy the ride and let them run until both you and the carp are tired out.
Way to go!
