I've probably said something to the effect of how hard carp are to catch about a thousand times...I should preface that by saying they are hard to catch with an artificial. They eat corn like candy.
I actually hooked this one for her, spotted it cruising right off shore and I just set the piece of corn about 2 feet in front of the carp. He zipped forward and tailed on the corn immediately. Elia fought him for quite a while, I'd say the fish was close to 10 lbs, one of the fattest carp I've caught in this pond.
Not to be outdone, JJ got in on the action quickly!
Elia did a great job netting that one!
We need to work on his release technique though!
