Details:I get a message late yesterday asking if I had any tips or words of wisdom about Carp fishing, because this person had been trying but with no success yet. My response was plain enough, Yes I have words of wisdom, meet me tomorrow morning. Hahahahaha Earlier this am, I went to the River with no luck, water a mile high and full of floating debris, so not going back there yet, only one other place I want to be....

Funny story about this meeting, a number of years back I put a 25lb Carp in my tub for the night so I could register it and release it in the morning, forgot to tell the wife hahahaha so Chowder had seen that picture and when he messaged me, he reminded me of that, not many people saw that pic or knew of that story.

Early Dark Thirty is here and so are the Carp, this is the second time here this year for me at this spot, and things have not changed a bit, pphheewww, no pressure here at all to produce Trophy size fish, no pressure at all, and if there was, all gone by 5!!!!! Yeah Baby.

After about 20 minutes I check my lines and as Chowder is doing the same I hear that O so familiar sound, MUSKIE, I'm on!!!!!!! And yup, he was, his first battle ever with these beasts. The drag is singing and I reel the other rods in and grab the net, because we are going to need it. Great job Chowder with the fight and congrats on your first Carp. 34 inches 20lbs Trophy baby. And he did the dance and he took a lap around the hill hahahahahaha You deserved to, Carp fever, and then 20 mins later I was doing the dance WOOOOOO 32 inches 18lbs Trophy and then a small little guy hahahahaha

3 total Carp with plenty of action going on, thanks for the message Chowder, always worth the time. And then 7 am came and so did the wind, which helped with the evacuation process.
