Nice Mirror

Post By: bron      Posted: 6/6/2016 7:11:15 AM     Points: 33482    
After months of fighting over our cat-rod with Captain Doughball I broke down and got him his own. We went to Meadow yesterday afternoon to break it in and he caught a cool looking 5# mirror carp with it. Toadfish met us and got some carp action himself with a 6# common. I caught a 7# myself and we did a frog rescue from a garter snake that bit off more than he could chew.

Nice mirror grass carp Curtis! I do think given some time that snake would have have won though.

Looks like all of you had a good day, even the frog. Good job on the rubber lips guys.

Thanks guys! Forgot to mention-- we forgot our net and I lost two carp trying to bank them and one of those was a mirror. I think Blake caught the same fish. Not only were we thrilled to have Toadfish show up but the fact he had a net doubled it. Always good fishing with him

The first fish of the day swam parallel to the bank and managed to snarll every line out too.
