Well I decided today was as good a day as any COOLER day to go fishing at some new places. I hit kirk pond for a bit got some bluegill, mini largemouth, and a redear sunfish. From there i went below the dam and dinked around. probably caught close to 8-12 bullheads, few bluegill and one fish i believe is a carp, the other im not sure if its a bluegill or warmouth or hybrid of the two?

I also came out of this with a funky pinkness... i dunno what is happening to me.

I do want to apologize for the quality of pictures, took them with my cell phone.

It would make my day to catch a Carp that small, ones around that size are really tough to find. I've only seen a few Warmouth, which were in the past year, I had to identify them for my buddies.

Try some white bread, just a little bead on a little treble, soft enough to set the hook through, roll it, then put the hook in. A kernel or two of corn might work also.

so you think that is a warmouth? reason i ask is because its got the colors of a spawner male bluegill which i havent been able to locate any pictures of warmouth with the same colors. behind the head i see bluegill in front of it i see warmouth

Nice catch! I am 100 % positive that's a warmouth. I know a pond that has some 10 inch warmouth lurking about. I'll send you a pic of a nice one I caught last year. I've caught some mighty small carp in there too. Thanks for sharing.

Looks like you had a productive day out there. Now with the bigger picture I would still have guessed crappie but I have never seen a warmouth so I wouldn't have known. Now i need to add another fish to the list.
