So running low on gas and needing to get out and fish I decided to go on a Carp adventure. So I took 2 of my ultralight rods down to this secret spot I found. I get there and I can see Carp swimming around all over the place. I tie on a hook and throw on a bread ball dangle it in front of a Carp that was right next to shore and fish on! I fished for probably 6 hours and caught probably 40-50 of them before I got bored and went home. What I ended up doing was casting one of my rods out and letting it sit and then I would sight fish with my other rod. Most fish came on the rod I was sight fishing with. However I did hook 3 VERY large ones out in the middle. I have never seen a fish that is no more than 2 feet away from me and looking directly at me while standing decide to hit my bait, and it happened over and over again! Average fish was probably 3-4lbs with a couple pushing the 10lb mark. Fun day but nowhere near the fight or intensity of a Steelhead.
