    Yep. That kind of stuff happens. They have been known to chase down lures when they are hungry in the spring and summer. Congrats on the fun fight.

  3. I landed this bad boy last night on a storm swimbait bluegill pattern. Was the first for me, went 8 pounds.

    It's a riot every year when we fish Erie someone in my group always manages to catch a Bull Carp on tubes while Bass fishing. I cought an 11 pounder this spring on a craw colored Crappie tube & 3 pound line at Griggs.
  5. I know of one guys who caught a large carp on a chub and another who caught one trolling a chub or israeli carp at Alum for saugeye/musky.
  6. I caught a 13 pounder on a jig/twister tail this spring.
  7. Gary,
    Carp love to eat aquatic insects. Also Crayfish and mussles are one of their favs.

    I caught a carp last year out of a local pond on a live bluegill while out catfishing!!! was the craziest thing I'd ever seen... I wouldn't have believed it if someone would have told me about it if I wasn't the one who caught it... went a little over 12lbs
