Last weekend I had the opportunity to head down to Tennessee to chase 30s and break my personal best of 28-8. We left Friday morning and headed south towards Knoxville. We baited the area when we arrived and began to setup our camp for the next 3 days. We fished for 68 hours and landed around 30 carp between the two of us. We had 4 30s, with the biggest being 36-4, and more 20s than we could bother to weigh. We ended up with only 3 fish under 20 and that counts my smallmouth buffalo. Friday morning we left the snow and cold temps in Ohio and headed south to Tennessee in hopes of catching some big carp. Note how excited Rod is to get on the road. Here was our home for 68 hours of fishing. The first fish of the trip. This isn't what we were looking for but this smallmouth buffalo was a good start none the less. Rod with his first fish. This is Rod's new personal best buffalo at 26lb 8oz. My new personal best carp and first 30+ came on the first night. Here is a 31lb 12oz personal best that would only hold for a day. "Hi. You'll do." This is one of the many twenties we caught before we stopped taking pictures and weighing all these "smaller" fish. This fish is 27lb 10oz. The next morning I managed another 27. This one went 27lb 4oz on the scale. Look at those lips... Here is another another angle of the same 27lb 4oz fish.
