Started at Stanley Res yesterday. As soon as I get there the wind and rain started. While I was there met a Fish Explorer member John... Nice to meet you John! We both moved to the Westminster area and have been hitting some of the local ponds. I told him about the ponds on 104th and 76 area. I have been trying all these ponds in the area and targeting bass. John and I headed to Elaine T. Valente ponds. we fished for about an hour. John was about to head home and I just threw out my last cast when my line took off! At first it felt like a 5 pounder! until a second later I realized a carp took my 7" Power Worm. After 20 min or so we finally landed the carp. it was 31.5" Oh ya and I was supposed to be home at 6:30pm so I wouldnt get an ear full from my G-Friend! I was late! sorry babe I chose a carp over you j/k
Yes, I was there and Thanks Adam for showing me a few spots. This was one of the impressive catches because it was caught on a bass jig! go figure! But I witnessed it and help land it and took the picture. the only fish I caught was a 4 inch bass on 4 inch lure! It was fun.
Ya it is a Master Angler catch. I was trying for a bass but this carp will do. I know there are some largemouth. Thats all i know at the moment. I caught a couple small ones out of there this last week.
