Good warm up for carp tourny

Post By: bron      Posted: 7/11/2015 7:07:30 PM     Points: 46523    
Caught two nice COMMON CARP today warming up for next week. Took Cpt. Doughball to his home lake for an update this afternoon not expecting much but when we got there about 3:00 I got him set up up and when I got my last pole out I cast it and before I could shut the bail I had line stripping! I closed the bail and set the hook and had a #2 carp. Got a #5 one later. Might not win a tourny but fine practice. Blake did a great job netting both. Please rotate photos.. I know I suck on my phone. They were not GRASS CARP!

Kinda wish you lived closer so I could give you a lift Rob....but then again glad you dont so I can win! If I could give you a ride from somewhere would you like to team up with Led2zep? Hes a really good angler who is going andcould use a teammate. I could run up Wadsworth and get you somewhere and get you back home.

Looking real close to its mouth I believe that is one of those rare hybrid grass carp. The ones only curtis knows about... Nice fish. I still think Blake is going g to win the tournament next weekend.

Thanks guys! John...weighed fish in net by hooking net and took off a couple pounds for net so weights might be low but I dont lip them anymore. Panfishin...Ill have to check rules but if you could fish 8 to 12 would you consider that?
