Nice bass with a BIG OLE carp on TOPWATER

Recommended Posts

A few buddies and I head up to the lake for some fishin today and the bluebird sky and windy conditions didn't yield too much of a bite for the most part. I finally changed to a jig after only catching a couple dinks and on my first cast after adding a trailer I landed a nice 4 lber. (pictured below). Fishing was rather slow and we were kinda gettin frustrated (especially when my friend tossed me a bag of ice and it landed on the edge of my leg, flipping my balancing polarized sunglasses into the water to sink into the murky underdark... >:()

We headed back to the docking area and two feeders started going off. A bunch of grass carp started feeding and we decided to throw whatever we had at them. I nearly hooked one on a worm hook outfitted with a pretzel form out lunch. My friend landed an 11 lb. carp with a Mt. Ranier Cherry from out lunch. Later I decided to go all out and tie on a topwater. I cast it into the feeding frenzy and let it sit until an big carp rolled on it and gave me one heck of a fight! He went 20 lbs. on the digital scale and made for some nice pics.

Thanks, Paul.  Yeah I landed that sucker on spinning gear with 8 lb. test line.  He put up a heck of a fight.  Actually Robert had already planned on filming a few of our fishing trips  ;D  we never got around to it last time though and he is out of town now.... will send you the first episode though!  ;)
