    Well..i have waited long enough.. i'm starting my fall fishing frenzy from now on... especially after hearing a 35lber caught recently at alum.. i'm going all out as far as baits and chumming goes.. Da CornChucker is baaack in full swing.. hoping to pick up the electric trolling motor soon..i have been eyeing a spot out there that requires a boat ride..so that trolling motor + my boat will hopefully = me and some biggies + a few new hotspots.. rowing my stuff out there isn't great..especially when its early in the morning..heh heh.. this is when Da CornDumper shows up... :D
     
  2. I have a motor you can use... Can pick it up if your going to the Ohio CAG Carp Challenge Edgewater-LE (Cleveland)...
    I want to stop by and wish everyone well... :D

    You guys need to quit taunting me with the likes of Alum. I desparately need to do some fishing too. I hope to make it out for the october outing, but I don't know for sure.

    Has anyone thought about the FFF and maybe a possible outing at Alum or downtown Columbus for the "event"

    Hey GMR, for sure give us a shout when your heading this way...maybe well get some guys together and give them fish a run for thier money....plenty of areas to fish for them here.

  12. I prefer the term "jinxed" rather than cursed...cursed seems like too harsh of a word :D . But...it is true that Crappielooker can be on a hot carp bite, catching fish left and right, and the second i come to fish with him all action comes to a stop :rolleyes:, particularly when it comes to fishing Alum Creek, though this "jinx" has been known to occur on other bodies of water.
     
  13. What type of areas would you fish at Alum now? Not looking for a specific spot, just generalities (shallow on points, flats, whatever).

    I normally head to the Cleveland area (Mentor) in the spring for my FishOhio carp and could only top out at a 25.5" fish on the weekend this year. I live close to Alum and would like to get some carp there. Or, would you recommend the Olentangy or Scioto for big carp on the N side of Columbus?

    Thanks,
    Joel

    Basic general idea game plan of mine:
    Big carp:Bays or points close to deep water(year round).
    Rivers, shallow flats near deep holes.
    Key is to find DEEP water near by.

    Numbers of fish:
    Shallow flats, bays, backwater areas....for both types of water.

    i tried the olentangy in early spring with not much luck.. caught several but very slow to say the least..
