    January catch reports

    And a good time was had by all; well done the catchers!
  2. The Ultimate 2.25 lb rods I got about 15 years ago were part of a cheap kit and probably not intended to work too hard (the reels didn't last). All fiberglass (not a shred of graphite) and because of our 1 rod rule I used the same rod most of the time. I wouldn't be surprised if it tested at 1.75 lb or less now, but for the close river swims where I never have to cast more than 10 to 25 yds I still like to use it. I suspect graphite rods aren't going to soften up to the same degree.
  3. They should; carp have receptors that allow them to sense any potential food source. When I first tried fishing with home-made boilies our wild carp were hitting them right away, and those were very crude boilies. Throw a few handfuls of boiled field corn out around where you'll put your hook bait to help draw them in. Welcome to the forum.
  4. Spam bot gearing up maybe. If not for them I would never have met Irina or gotten such a deal on this fabulous display kitchen.
  5. Yes; I couldn't find one in realtree. [Thank you, thank you, I'm here all week]
  6. Due to unseasonally warm weather, it will be awhile until we start fishing this winter (it takes 10" of ice before we can drive on the lake). I usually take a thermos of coffee and sometimes a small flask of whiskey.
  7. I only gave it a half-hearted try, so no need to respond. 😀
  8. That anglers' intuition is something those who don't fish, don't know about. How many of us have had a feeling something is up and got ready before getting any indication of a bite? Instinct can't be denied, good luck elmoputney.
  9. I quit drinking for good. I'm drinking for evil now.

  11. I'm content to soak and cook my maize because I'll use it on the hair as well as for ground bait. However, a carp is not a pipe bomb. Huge schools of carp feed on grains, pulses, and legumes spilled into the water where they load freighters at ports on the Great Lakes. Guides on the St Lawrence knife open huge sacks of maize on the transoms of their boats and let it go straight into the river. These are the places tourists come to try and catch their 50. Maybe they wait until it softens up a bit before eating it, but if they can crush clams and zebra mussels, they can probably crush corn. Even if raw isn't a danger, I think the cooked bait is worth the effort for the attractant value of released scent/flavour.

    Brolly blowout

    Good fishing and a good write-up as well! Looks like there are even some of the woolies in that pic over by the fence.
