    If he was handlining carp, he must have been using one of Da Kings reels!

    Hey Crappie......

    You have a PM doooooood :)
     
  8. Well...after seeing the fish Ak has been pulling out of the river by COSI, I figured it was time for me to try again. Still on a quest for my first carp of the year, I pulled down to the usual spot and set up for a few hours of fishing. This time I was even smart enough to come with some chum. After about an hour and a half of nothing, I noticed some movement on one of my rods...and seconds later I realized that a fish had grabbed my bait and was heading well down stream without me even realizing it. I ran to my rod and landed a nice 10-12 lb common after a short fight. Here's a pic of my first carp of the season:

    A bit later, Ak showed up to join in on the fun and after a short time he landed a nice fat carp...

    Bambi was fishing with me and managed to hook into what felt like a decent fish (on my rod) but didn't realize I had the drag loosened all the way. I just put new line on the reel the other day...and as you can expect, a massive bird's nest resulted when she pulled back on the fish. After a few minutes of untangling...and with the help of Ak's handlining expertise...I managed to gain control of the fish just in time for it to swim into a rock. Never even got to see the fish...and it was my last hookup of the day, though there were a few more lite bites, but not enough to hook into them. Overall, it was a good day to at least land my first carp of the season.

    January 15........olentangy River. Water temp of 35
     
  13. This fish was the earliest (and coldest) I've landed a carp yet. Last year I had one hooked in late February, but it came off at the bank. The water now is definitely frigid...but I've been surprised to see how active the fish have been, though most of the bites have been much liter.

    CW, the bites ive been getting have also been lite at times, but the ones that hit it and ran were the ones that really wanded it.....all the carp caught the other day with AK were alarm screamers....38 degree water temp.


    Last winter i had the same thing, the light taps were not of fish really wanting to feed, but the ones that were hungary took off as normal.
    Which makes me think since ive caught smallies ever month as early as New Years day....they all hit very well, so im guesing if you can find a good deep carp wintering hole and put baits in there faces, the hungary ones will take line too.
    Heck you see those guys on the CAG board catching carp through the ice.....gets ya thinking!!!!
