    I'm sitting back relaxing and writing some info on my last fish into my log. Of course I'm bragging to AK that I have caught 25 fish in 23 hours of fishing. Blah blah blah and 3 mirrors....blah blah blah And then it dawns on me.....I have not checked my pole in awhile.....I stand up and take a look and......NO POLE!! Some stupid fish stole my pole!! So how is this AK's fault your wondering, Because he said "heard" what sounded like a "drag" being pulled! So I lose ANOTHER pole, the first one I broke after losing a 30+ lber off of the bank and back in the drink and now this pole thanks to AK. At this rate I'll need to buy new poles everymonth, lol :rolleyes:
  2. thats a nice problem to have, big fish breaking your poles

  3. You were not using the alarms you stol...aaw out bid me for? :p :D
    The ones I have sure do make things easier... I was talking with Mark when we met at West Branch W/O any worry about my rods, which I also had the drag set at almost nothing <-- a must do without baitrunner reels!!!

    LOL..LOL..#1 thing i tell guys that are getting into carp fishing..whatever your price range is invest in a pair of BAITRUNNER style reels...this will help elemenate the lost rod issue all together(that is IF you remember to flip the
    9 out of 10 times when you hear about someone loosing a pole, a carp is to blame.Ive seen guys set with thier fish rod between there legs and still not react fast enough, when a carp takes off it can be blazin fast.

    The other "goodies" us serious carpers use is all personal preference..not needed, a baitrunner style reel IS ! I still dont see why guys still bother with single drag reels and keep adjusting them after each cast...wasted time and hassel for me, but to each is own i guess.

    Just be lucky it was'nt a $300-$500 carp combo......geez I hate to even think of that thought!!

    Might be time for some euro rods and at the very least a baitrunner

    Hey, check around, I seem to remember a thread recently where someone got some free carp tackle somewhere, maybe he can tell you where he gets it. :D
    Anyone heard of Aurora tackle? I've seen some of their baitrunners very inexpensive on eBay.

    Not Cool is RIGHT. I do not care what RiverRat and other members have going on , but it's not going to carry over on this site. I've had it and something needs to be done and it will......... Rick
