"Get Hooked on New York"

0 Catfish, 4 Carp, 1 fat snake Details
Name:0 Catfish, 4 Carp, 1 fat snake
Created By:ba_kinnar
Details:I had two hours from when I dropped the kids off at school, until I had to be at work, so I hit the Concord River specifically looking for Catfish. I had an 8lb test line.

Within minutes I had a huge hit, and I knew it had to be something big. I was hoping for a channel cat, but it's speed told me that it was a Carp. Like I said, I had an 8lb test, so I didn't think I'd be able to get it in. I was right. I set the drag super loose, and managed to get it to within a 10 feet of the shoreline and it was gone.

I still had an hour and 45 minutes, so I went back to trying to catch some catfish and instead ended up with 4 carp, in about an hour's time. With the light line I set the drag loose and it took forever to get each one in.

I had no tarp or anything because I wasn't expecting anything bigger than bullhead or a catfish, so the first one I didn't even pull out of the water all the way, undid the hook, and sent it back on it's way. The bank was muddier than it looked, so when I caught the other 3, I placed them on a rock that was behind me to work out the hook.

To top it off, on the way back to my car I caught this snake, which as you can see by the pics, just devoured something.
