First off let me say I love fishing for carp because in my opinion they fight harder than any other fish. With that being said, this year I went to the mohican river wading with a vanilla doughball that rrbrski told me how to make back on GFO. I put on a 1 oz sinker and tossed that baby out there. It got stuck on something on the bottom and i just let it sit there for awhile and put my pole down on the ground. Then I took my other fishing pole and started throwing a spinner bait around. As time went by I got sortve bored so i decided to edge my way to the end of a log protruding out over the water. ONe cast with my spinnerbait, i felt something weird on my leg. I looked down and saw it was my other line and that the whole thing was taught and moving. I quickly grabbed the line just as my pole flew in the water. I followed my line to the rod and reeled in a nice 6 lb carp after about a 10 min fight. The only problem was I was sitting on my other rod and i couldnt get the carp to swim over to the log which i was still sitting on the end of. By the time I got to the carp and lifted it out of the water the hook came untied and the carp was released....LUCKY ME. It was a blast!
