It was super windy today but I'm sure as heck not going to miss an opportunity to fish. 20mph winds that had the marina I was fishing at almost whitecapping! This was my first time ever at Lake Ray Hubbard, but it definitely won't be my last. All fish were caught on corn and some leftover oats and chili method mix from my last trip at Grapevine, and were released to fight another day!



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This little guy wasn't even 5ft from me when I was baiting up yesterday, probably not too good that he isn't scared of humans.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
First catch of the day seems a little wounded or diseased. Didn't touch him and cleaned my mat and net right after. Anyone know what this was?



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Damon's going to be pissed that I already broke his 18lb PB. Guess it'll give him something to shoot for! Broke my previous PB of 16lb with this 23lb 1oz, 31.5in beauty!



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
40 minutes later and yet another PB! This gorgeous fish clocked in at 28lb 12oz and 33in! What a beast!



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Little carp action in between the giants that were biting today





^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Is this a ghost carp? I think so, but I'm not too sure as I've never caught one before. He had some patterning on his back as well. 13lb 9oz



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
It sure is crazy that this was my smallest buff of the day, it's still 4.5lbs over my previous PB! 20lb 8oz, 30.5in



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Another ghost? Didn't weigh him but he looked exactly the same as the other, even the pattern on top.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Last fish I weighed for the day, solid 12lb 1oz Common Carp



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I had just finished packing up and was just about to pull this rod out of the water when it took off, and I landed this dark little carp. Always nice to get that last bite!

Thanks Fitz, Potlicker, jipped, and Wildman! Almost every water is a new water to me as I've just started, but it sure is nice to catch fish regardless.

Beautiful fish, strong work. Definitely a ghost carp in the 6th pic, and a decent one at that. One of those has been on my bucket list for a long time! You should be proud! laugh

Thanks Andrew and MinMirny! Andrew, if you want a ghost go to Ray Hubbard, I've seen photos of other people catching them there as well, so they've gotta be at least somewhat common there.

After seeing the action you got into I might go check it out! Let me know if you have any tips. I always drive over Ray Hubbard on my way to Fork. Always wondered. I might go check out the action soon.

I've only been there once, so there isn't much in the way of tips that I can give. I did stop by a couple marinas and ask where I should go to fish for carp and buffalo, and of course just received some funny looks and no information. I didn't expect any, but it was worth a shot!
