lol.... come on guys carp are easy, when i was 10 or so, i caught one that was 37lb from the lake behind my house, i saw it spawning, like it was standing on its head in the shallows and its tail was coming out of the water i guess making a nest or something, i got in my flatbottom and paddled over to it, and got a dip net, and scooped her out. i got a pic of it somewhere. no fish hook required. LOL

lol tony i didnt eat it, we took it to the bait shop down the road, weighed it on certified scale, and the lady there actually bought it from me for 10 bucks. what she did with it was use the scales off it to make some jewlery. a friend of ours, Bernard, actually got the fillets off it.

what is the fun in catching a fish with a net? Unless of course you are a commercial fisherman. Carp do not make nests, they just release the eggs and then the male releases his sperm as he is swimming next to her.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

lol when your 10 years old penn... and you see a tail wider than most of the fish you have ever caught flapping around 6" out of the water... u go for it. and it was alot of fun, got soaking wet lol.

lol see i learn something every day on here, i dont know if it was nesting or not, but it looked like it was full of eggs, couldnt believe how fat it was, and doing a head stand in some weeds in water shallower than it was long lol. i mean i guess it could have been feeding off something on the bottom but it looked like it was digging a hole to me, it was all stirred up around it so i assumed it was making a nest, u could see big round shallow depressions that nests all over that area when the water was low, i guess catfish made those tho. damn im still trying to find that picture, it mixed up in my stuff i havent unpacked from when i moved.

in the countryside, during dry season, people used to look for a swamps
that is about to dries up.... we bring small bucket and sack... put some
soil in the sack and stack it above and below the water flow. we then
move all the water..and stir the mud... all fishes, shrimps, and any
living things in the swamp will surface above the mud and it was our time
to compete in picking them....

i was searching to find the largest carp record in uk. it was 44lb when I went fishing but has it been broken? I did find this and it made me laugh.


The 44 pound British carp record stood until 1980 when it was broken by a 51 pound carp taken at Redmire Pool by Chris Yates. I believe that the British record is now just over60lb


Ha yes i remember the the mags mentioning Redmire Pool and Chris Yates. but i didn't know about the record had been smashed like that Penn. I knew some big fish were coming out of french lakes along with 200lb cats.

Man if we don't stop with the overtime we've been having lately I may never be able to get out fishing this year! haha! :laugh: Running 6 days a week right now and its looking like a good chunk of the summer might be mandatory 7 days a week :angry:

Don't get me wrong I'm glad I have a good job but I would like a life too! haha! And now you all are getting me in the mood for the fishing season! :P
