I’ve been checking out the pond from time to time and finally saw some carp activity the other day.

This morning I took a look and sAw a few groups clooping on the surface. Had to take care of biz and pick up a rod before I could chase after them.

Had a bit of free time this afternoon and strung up the rod and had a look see. Not too much to be seen?

I’ll be back soon.

Many carps cruising around, 30 - 80 feet off the bank!

One was interested!

 'c;  'c;  'c;  After many years of not pursuing carp, I am fired up for poling my boat around after some carps this year!!
Awesome!
Do you get heavy runs on nearly every fish? Or like many species does it just depend on the individual you hook into?
Tippet sizing?

these guys are fighters... if you hook one in the shallow end watch out they run like crazy... in the deeper end they dive and fight but the run isn't as long...

Went out this morning for a bit, the carp were doing the cruise by thing and I had a number of shots. When I arrived there were three guys with about nine rods rigging up, I said good morning and walked on down a ways, as I was stripping off line for my first cast I turned to see the commotion on the bank ad a tight line in the water, I grabbed my net and double timed it back to fisherman who had hooked a carp. I was about to shout out, as they were trying to drag the fish up the bank, but before I could get a sound out I heard the snap of the mono....

I'll go back another day when it's less crowded.... d:b

Got lucky today, this guy picked the fly up off the bottom 40 feet out and ran with it!

Yesterday I was casting to a mud plume of what I thought was a tailing carp! A damn snapper took the fly, I broke him off, sorry spork!

Today I cast to a few cruisers without any luck but found a pair feeding on the bank but under a branch. Hooking it was easy, finally got it under and on the right side of the branch and into the net. It was a flopper!

Why you treating those carps so poorly?  :laugh:
