Default The Damndest thing...

We went out this evening crappie fishing and caught 32 of the nicest 1-2lb crappiie + 3 nice 3-4 lb hybrids. I was casting a roadrunner in chartreuse.
On the last cast. I thought I caught a stump...then it moved some...thought I caught some luck and would get my bait back... 15 minutes later I landed a 21 lb. Buffalo... I can't imagine a buffalo hitting a roadrunner...Man what a bulldog gear those fish have. I was using a Fenwick 6 1/2 ft. med light rod with 6 lb. flourocarbon line...what an experience...

Good stuff, I love catching carp. Relatively easy to catch BIG fish. I love dropping a dough bait or corn on the bottom while I'm sitting in camp. A whole lotta fun for a young kid too, for lots it'll be the biggest fish they every catch or even see for that matter.

When we first moved into the house on the pond 25 years ago, there we no carp. About 7-8 years ago I was out fishing for large mouth and saw this monsta making a commotion in relatively shallow water. I thought it was a humongous bass. When i got closer and saw it's coloration and large scales, I realized it was a carp. Now I see them all the time...never caught one though. Maybe this year I'll try.
