    Well i had to work most of the "holiday" weekend..but made it out today with Dave. Jake was a no show, guess he had to spend quality time with his women?..lol...too bad buddy because you missed a great day.

    I had 4 carp today that i couldnt turn and lost to brush...unreal power...too bad i didnt take my big pit reels and 13' 3.25 TC rods(i'll be prepared better tuesday). I did manage to land some though...with this one below being my biggest of the day...i know 2 of the ones i lost would go much bigger than this one.


    My biggest of 2005 so far, 28.2 lbs.:

    I dont think they are..at least not all of them.
    We've been hitting a few areas pretty consistant and we have yet to see any on the banks spawning..atleast in the river that is.
    Most of the time on the scioto they spawn around the sametime as the flatheads..its usually in June when they spawn, depending on weather , water conditions and water temps. I look for them to spawn in the next week or so.


    Good luck to ya AK,

  5. There is plenty of carp love going on in the smaller flows down here in SW Ohio.

    That is a phatt carp!
     
  6. nice carp. I can not even imagine what a 30lb carp would pull like. My 24lber was hard enough to pull in. I like big belly on that one. Looks like part of the tail is missing. I wonder what caught a hold of that carp?

    Thanks for sharing the picture
