CarpQuest S5E8 - Carp Fishing in Colorado, 40 lb grass carp

Guest Blog by: JOHN FINNEY 10/18/2017
Well carp fans, it's been a long tough fall, the victory coffee could not keep me from being sick for a month and out of work. Finally back on my feet and found the time to put together a new episode of CarpQuest. 

So, it's time to break out your java, heat up the water, grab a huge mug, sit back and enjoy our latest episode.

In this session I travel up to northern Colorado and fished with two anglers new to carp fishing, Ryan and Bleu. It's one of the things I love about CarpQuest,  the opportunity it provides me to meet so many passionate anglers.  It was a great day, good conversation, lots of commons in the net and finally a new PB grass carp for me landed. What an amazing session.

Both Ryan and Bleu continued with their carp fishing, with Bleu winning the TLO Carp Tournament at the end of this year, and Ryan placing in the previous one. What a great couple of guys, passionate and dedicated to their fishing. 

Hope you enjoy ! 

I am an avid carp fisherman. I am passionate about helping others better understand and appreciate this much misunderstood fish. I am always happy to chat fishing, tackle and tactics and to share information with others to assist them in their pursuits. Some call me the "UK Madman", others CO Springs John. Me, I call myself a fisherman - perhaps a little obsessed with my passion and coffee at times!

Congrats on that beast of a grassie John! Loved the fight footage too! That was a nice turtle too for sure.

My thanks to Ryan, not only for inviting me up to fish his local lake but for grabbing the camera to record that battle, sure was a beast.

John, Very Nice Fish! Victory Coffee and Ribs for you!

Thanks Marty, though a huge fins-up to all our Colorado anglers for their impressive domination of the King of Cats tournament this year, you guys knocked it totally out the park. A bucket of victory coffee and a table full of ribs would not suffice !
