People don't give carp the respect they deserve. I love catching them.

If carp could jump we wouldn't even be talking about smallies.:rolleyes:


Ya and if they liked to blast a zara spook off the top....
they are fun to haul in, I'd be happier to fish for em if they were more often aggressive in behavior and like to hit more bass type lures ex. I have had em hit rattle traps and small plastics . theyve been hard for me to catch on plastics cuz they usually spit em back out so quickly. I did catch one on the fly rod one time and I'd like to do that again!

Caught 2 at chatty last summer, one on a gulp minnow, and one on a half digested shad a smallie puked up in my boat,... both in the upper teens lb wise. Hella fight and I gotta say the cold water ones her are not near as disgusting as back home (Phx). In those desert lakes in the summer they stink to high heaven,and have weird lessions on em (warm water breeds bacteria),... frickin disgusting. The 2 last summer were big, pristene, and fought hard! Beats sittin around not catching anything:-\



Not that I would ever go out targeting them,... but can see why some would.


Those might be mirror carp you're talking about. .they look nasty, caught one by accident once and didn't even wanna touch it. I'd be down to go for some carp tho...the tug is the drug...
