First Carp on a lure !!

Postby Prof » Sat Sep 28, 2013 9:10 pm

Well the wife was watching AFL today, ::" so me and the young fella decide it's time to go for a fish down the creek. :fishing: :fishing: ::)) ::))

Nice afternoon but there was a lot of crap on the water, :sad: tried a few cicada lures first off but with all the debris was too much time taken removing the crap from the lures. :/:

Switched to deep diving lures, I put on a DF 40 River 2 sea in a black red colour, after 2 casts I was on, but not for long ?? Whatever hit the lure smashed it like a freight train a couple of good runs then twang, snapped the leader and lost my lure. :shithits: :shithits: :sad: :sad:

So I tied on an Atomic deep diver in the blue/black silver colour with the red eye, another hour goes past for nothing, then a good cast lands right up under the trees, flip the bail arm one wind and WHAM !!! : jumping laugh: : jumping laugh:
This thing just hammered the crap out of the lure, took about 4 min's to land the bugger as I only had 4lb braid and 8lb leader , at first i thought it was a monster bass or EP by the way it took the lure, but as I get it near the bank I see it's a BLOODY CARP !!! >>: >>: , with My net man Lachlan (4yrs old ) bring me the net I was only just able to lift it one handed whilst balancing on the edge of the bank.

Here's the result....



It went about 50cm fork length, my PB and my first Carp on a lure !! Woohoo !! : jumping laugh: : jumping laugh: : jumping laugh:

Things went quiet after that with only 2 small Bass being landed, 29cm and 23cm approx . :funfish:



was a great way to spend the afternoon with the young fella. :fishing: :fishing:

Cheers. :glug: :glug: :glug:

At least you got rid of one solid carp out of the system. I've put a few carp into the trees along that stretch of creek towards the end of last season.. all fell to a very lightly weighted bloodworm wriggler. Solid fight, bastard to get up the bank too!
I dont understand all the crud in the water, making surface fishing nigh on impossible

Good capture, it must have pulled hard, good to see
a few bass about as well. :fish:

I think the crap on the water is from the trees shedding
their old leaves and the like, some areas I've been to lately
are basically unfishable at certain times of the tide. :cry:

I trust the carp was taken home for fertilizer. :twisted:

Nip. : winky:
