Thanks Curtis for the reply.
Don't feel bad!
The last two times I fished for carp I did not get even a run.
Saw a couple of nice ones rolling and that was it.
As for chumming all I do is throw some can corn out. Clayton has a mix that he makes up to chum with and it seems to work pretty good.
As for their patterns all I can say is if they bite they bite!
Love that fight.
