    Thanks guys.
    AK, lol.....yea big carp dont eat little ole corn....only catch smallones on it..lol..

    Dipster, carp can be lively on the bank for sure, but the worst is grass carp, they never settle down for a picture. The other 30 i caught a few weeks ago almost dislocated my jaw while trying to set up for a pic...luckly i have fast reaction time and i only got the tail fin, if i wouldnt have moved, could have been like a Mike Tyson TKO punch.
    CW, i hear ya man....the pic. does not give you a good clear scale to the length of this fish, or how big its head was.

  13. Well done Scott. Mind sharing the location? PM is fine, no use giving the bowhunters any tips.

    I checked out the Ohio 50 lb. record carp....it lists it as 50 lbs. and 40" long..if only my fish would have been 14 lbs heavier...oh well atleast my carp was longer. And to think my biggest flathead to date is only 47" long.....

  16. congratulations scott, I am glad for you. thanks for sharing the pictures. I have a few spots lined up to fish in river for this fall. Hope you catch something bigger.

    Thanks Marc,
    Yea three 30's in one season(so far ;) ) is better than i could have hoped for.
    Im also reaching that twenty 20 lbers mark also...hopin to reach thirty+ 20 lbers for this year.
    Yup, for my money, the river is the only place to go for numbers & size...plus no hassel with boats or other anglers.


    Good luck,
    Scott

    Man Someone needs to learn me how to carp fish. Sounds like fun and the lures (Bait) (Corn) aint all that expensive either. :D

    Bass Hawg,
    Man if ya really want to have some fun, stop by one of the Fish-Ins thats held each month....you'll certainly have fun.

    When the dog days of summer have the other species in "lock-jaw"....carp fishing can save the day..plus ya just might get hooked on them like the rest of us.
    Im a catman & smallie nut at heart...but nothing beats the slow times like a real hard tug at the end of the line.
