So We're All Doing It? 08-21 to 08-27
« on: September 01, 2016, 10:35:03 AM »
Hi guys,

Haven't posted much as I have been super busy and have not gotten out as much as usual. Hit the surf about 3 times in the last two months for nothing but kelp monsters. With the surf being blown out, but still having to itch that itch, I started targeting carp at the local pond, and it seems so have many of us. So without summing up the hours of waiting and the countless lost fish here are some pics of the last weeks fish.

Hopefully these damn weeds git out soon and we can all go back to toothy fish. But big lips make for a nice change of pace!

Think of them as freshwater bat rays. ;) Pat's is a beast.

Pound for pound they are an awesome game fish in the fight.

They make great Catfish bait where allowed too.

I love carp honestly. LMB get old after a few and Catfish in my area are hit or miss on if they're just gonna roll or actually take drag! Looking forward to the first flathead report from you Jim!

Nice chunks there Adam!  Looks like a nice relaxing spot!
I've never caught a carp so I'll have to find a nearby spot to try.

Carp are too fun....   Excellent work on the goldfish boss!  That one is a toad!
You can't catch them from your computer chair.
