  1. I have a question, when i arrive at my spot i chum and the carp are there in about 5 to 10 minutes. Catch one, then chum again. But the carp dont show up at all after that first catch. I know they probably get scared, how long does it usually take before they show up again.
     
  2. I don't think it's ever the same. The first one might have been the only one in the area. If you have a lot of fish in the area, the next hook up is sometimes just minutes away...even immediately.
     

  3. i agree with bottombouncer, usually if theres more than one carp and u get on them ur on them and when ur on them u usually dont have time to mess around, so it must of been one possibly a few more and they got spooked, i wish i had a carp pole with me this past weekend i seen some mammoth monster carp on the LMR that would have put up one heck of a fight for sure.
     
  4. It may take a while for them to bite again, thet is why when I fish, I get one then usually leave {80% of the time, I have only got one fish per day}.

    Where do you fish? If it is a big body of water, you can move to another spot and try there, that is why when I carp fish in a river, I have several spots, so if they have left one spot, I go to the other spots.

    If it is a small pond, you may have to just wait it out.

    Typically, there is a 15-40 minute wait for new bites for me after one fight :mad:
     
  5. Its a small stretch of river, infested with poison ivy, oak. The vegetation covers alot of the spots, but there is one spot not bad, kinda like a pool, but a ton of snags. Ill chum, about 3-4 show up ill get one then they disappear. so ill chum some more, 1 may come back in about 20 mins but then leave shortly after. 1 day we caught a 34 lb snapping turtle, that took about half hour to land. And we also accidently caught a goose that snagged the bread right when it hit the water. Im gonna experiment with different baits this year.
