Carpers, I'm going to try and make it for 2 out of the 3 days of the West Branch Carp-In. One of the two days I am going to take my boat out and regular fish the lake for anything that bites, and the other day I want to bank fish with the carpers and to try to learn a little bit about these beasts. I hope to be able to fish next to payara, because he seems like an extreme carpmaster. As far as bait goes I haven't a clue, I tried making rrbski's strawberry boilies one time but I don't think they turned out right and I certainly didn't catch anything on them. All the carp that I have caught have some by accident. I've caught them on nightcrawlers, dead minnows, and crayfish. My biggest two Carp have come on crayfish. A 14lber and a 22lber. Here's a pic from when I was young and dumb, I kept this fish instead of releasing it like I should have. This beast came out of Lake Erie in Ashtabula.......TightLines!
