Here we go Carp fans, the the wait is OVER, my video editing system has been replaced and the new one is up and running, so...
A new episode of CarpQuest has been released! [log in for link]
In this episode of CarpQuest we take a family picnic down south to a lake near Pueblo. Would the rumors of grass carp at this venue prove true ? The session was almost abandoned as I left my coffee at home, total nightmare!
Hope you enjoy the video !
In the next episode CarpQuest returns to Adams CountyFairgrounds, where the Quest began a few years ago on FXR ... would it once again be another "Carp Slam", wait and see...
Any very fruit flavored bait, small cherry tomatoes, even flavored corn can get you into the grass carp if they are feeding off the bottom. If they on top water,your best bet, if you can see them, would be with a flyrod... I also have a real soft spot for grass carp, always fun to catch and always energetic once you get them in close or out the water.....watch out for their very hard boney foreheads, they can give you a real beating !

I have fished Willow Springs Ponds. The first CarpQuest video ever was filmed there, think I only caught some trout out of the big pond. The smaller pond has some nice commons. The larger pond I have not had too much fortune with for carp but it does have some good fish in there - I hope to get into some nice fatties from there one of these days...

Cool video John--glad you're back in business! I have caught 1 grass carp--at Lake Arbor around 1990. It weighed 10# and I still remember that as the best battle I've had on rod and reel. I thought something would break before I got that one in!

Good stuff John always enjoy the videos. How about an episode from Barr Lake or Jackson, epic carp impoundments. We used to catch mirror carp up at Black Hollow by Ault, but not sure that is open to the public anymore. Might get a bullhead out there too.
