Huge Carp!!

Recommended Posts

I just bagged huge carp today! 39 inchers with 27 inch girth. Absolute beast fish! The scale said it was 35 pounds. :yes: I couldn't believe it after 30-45 minutes of fight. After i netted him, carp still have fighting power left and bend my net in half until I grabbed the net lines. Then dragged to nearby shore and took photo. I barely can lift it after that power fighting. Oh man, I am really wiped out and I just realized I have to paddle back home. :( But I gave it couples of breaks and fishing along paddle way to home.

I saw couple bigger one out there along with my carp that was caught. But forget it, man! I will after those fish sometime later, not today. I was physical worn out. I need that kind of fighting pain. It is only beginning for me. :beer:

Haha! Nice one! In the summer when I get bored in the evening, I slip down to the finger lakes trib behind my house and can usually catch some monsters. Love to use my steelhead setup with bread balls. Man can they fight.

Wow thats a real nice one! :yes: They are a ton of fun to catch especially the bigger ones like that. I usually fish a park near my place for em on a summer nights, cheapest canned corn for 39 cents a can...bait up a number 4 hook on 8 pound test, chum a couple times and let em fly. Cant wait for it!

Water Gremlin - Yeah, I know Carp get bad reputation for sport fish. But If you want a really fight from fish, Carp is one of fish that can test on your fishing strength and skills.

Hammer289 - That's exactly what I just did on my carp fishing. Corn used as bait was very cheap and very effectively for carp fishing. :yes:

Amazing how they like to eat corn! Wondering if they keep eating corn as daily, would their meat taste like as corn? :lol:

Ray - That's awesome. I could have take you along but I don't have a boat. I always work on Commerical boat and Charter. Maybe in couple of years before I will buy my first boat, I'll definitely take you along. :yes:

p.s. you are being wrong about main run. This date (aug 13th-29th) is exactly when serious holy cow Stripers run. But previous that date, all babies are everywhere with one or two cows along them. My biggest stripers always taken in whole month of August.

Yeah, you can sneak around in P-town. I have been see someone who catching 50lbs at there consistly for couple of years. I couldn't figured it out. Nor I can catch some big'um at there. except cods.

All my monster bass was caught in Chatham and Brewster on wire/hair-jig on nearby shore or far out at less three miles. (cannot fish in federal water for stripers) even through I caught one striper bass in 30 pound range while trolling for BFT at 15 miles offshore.

their is a big rip off the point of p-town problem is ive haerd it can go from sorta calm to 6 ft rollin current when tid gets in full swing toss in a few great whites and ill go for smaller ones and battle the seals or the surf.. just remember ya gotta use 15lb mainline and 12lb leader to compare fishing numbers and light duty rods.........if you do that the capt. will toss you in for shark bait........... :o

Yeah, it is at northwest point of Ptown shore.

If you fish west of Ptown shore, You will find cliff spot maybe 300-500 feet away from beach at where boat crowd is, It is drop-off from 50-100 feet. Bunch of stripers on there. on occasion, you might will see BFT jumping around. :yes:
