Just returned from spending the morning with Shawn learning about carp. Nice turnout well over 20 people fishing that I could figure, seeing they were spread out. Saw one carp caught while I was there and they were hoping for a wind change to get better.
Not knowing much about carp and going around visiting the guys I sure found it interesting. Everyone should check out one of these events for it sure is no seat of the pants group for sure.
I stopped by this morning for a while. Talked to Shawn for a long time asking a lot of questions and getting some great information. The way these guys carp fish is a science, very, very technical.
Two highlights of the morning was getting to meet Bob and chat a while and finally getting to meet Scott "flatheadmaniac" . Scott was great, very nice and extremely informative with all of my questions. He and I had some runs in on the boardfs in times past but I had never meet him face to face. I wouldn't mind fishing with him anytime.
I didn't see any fish caught while I was there but understand that quite a few were caught during Friday night.
One shock, that almost did me in was returning to my hotel in Pt. Clinton last night after fishing with lewis, I walked into the lobby and who is standing there.....CATKING!!!!, in my hotel, CHECKING IN!!!!!!. Good to see you again Rick.
back again from the lake, seemed as if everyone had fish on or had one too the bank through the day. It was nice to see everyone again. More and more fish were showing up towards dusk with more than a few being landed.
DA KING !!! just returned from East Harbor. A very good turnout,and just talked to cwcarper at 10:30 this evening and the carp are hitting. 20 pounder a few over 18 I believe, and some smaller ones were caught when I left . Anyways, GREAT FOOD, GREAT TIME !!! Saw all the old guys, met ShoreBoundOne and his wife. Very nive to finally meet you Mitch I'll add more tomorrow, tired, but I will say this. What's the chances of driving 200 miles, and having Lundy show up while I was getting a room I swear to god, these 'eye guys just keep trackin DA KING !!! to see if they can obtain a few more hints on fishin the big lake.......JEEZE US !!!!!!!!! I'm still stuffed by all the food we had. CATKING ( I got one 5 pound carp)
Just talked to cwcarper again this morning. The carp were really hitting last night. I think he said somebody caught around 15 or so We all will get a full report probably tonight or tomorrow. First carp outing of the year was a HUGE success. Thanks to ALL involved in these special outings. There were a few guys from Illinois, Michigan, Pennslyvania and of course Ohio. Tpet cooked up a cajun dish with schrimp and crayfish, Mishio did some buffalo wings,carpless had some great beans, Richie from CAG brought some sasuages ,Trevor from Michigan grilled some Jalepeno peppers wrapped with bacon and stuffed with cheese EVERYBODYS dish was super.
