started out by making some bait. the 3 basic ingredients..
a bucket of bread's crusts.. a package of bait mixture and some coconut milk along with some of the lake's water..

mix everything together well and let it sit in the bucket awhile..

the rig consist of a cage feeder, a swivel, beads, leaders, and a size 14-15 hook.. these are huuuuge hooks, would equal to around size 2/0-3/0 size over there.. using a float to indicate the initial bites..

i'm currently using a deep sea jigging rod from shimano (blue rose) coupled with a daiwa BG30 loaded with 25lbs test mono.. the rod is rated for dyneema line size 6.. which is in the middle of the action scale.. i love how the the rod's action looks.. here's me with a fish on.. :)


and here's the result.. i caught a few of these monsters today.. i wish some of you hardcore guys get to feel the power of these monsters..


next time out i'm going to try to muscle up the elusive siamese carp.. i have been talking to some old timers and guides around here and got some tips.. hopefully i can hook up with at least 1.. some people wait for weeks to land 1.. :huh:
ps.. pops for pick ups are a hit here also, i'll be using that next time.. :)

I never caught vegetarian catfish before :D

That bait looks like cole slaw.

The dock you were fishing off of looks like you could get lunch delivered while you fish.

AK,

Do we need to airfreight you some canned corn, or can you get it over there? I'm waiting to see you with a huge carp. Glad you're doing well, sounds like you're in heaven!

Looks like an awfull easy spot to fish.......lol.:D

Hey, can't help but notice on the picture with the "fish on"....must've been jumping or something?? Looks like the line is almost straight out of the rod tip...you didn't think that would slip by did you ??
Looks like a great fish, eyes are low like a big-head carp. Man, I'd like to tangle with a few of those, almost looks like a version of a bluecat.
Anyhow, great to hear from you, Jim

the fish was on the run while the picture was taken.. it must have ran 50yards of line out.. i don't know what to compared the runs to.. its like common carp times 10.. :)
i'm going there with my cousin tomorrow early morning.. hopefully i will get to tango with some siamese carp.. :D heck, i wouldn't mind 70-80lbs catfish neither. :p i want to test my new rod/reel out to da max..

how do you plan on targeting the siemese carp, i dont know much about them except that they get very large, maybe you can test that new rod on a 70-80lb carp!
