Myself and Clayton aka the Wildman of the Navidad went to the Guadalupe River to see if we could catch some sunnies and Carp. We did good on both. We caught several nice nice Bluegill and Redbreast along with three nice Carp. The smallest was 12 lbs caught on ultralight tackle with four pound test line by Clayton and the two larger ones were in the 15 pound range. The fights were "AWESOME"! Carp were all caught using corn. The sunfish were caught using worms. Fish were in 7 to 10 feet of water and were caught in the afternoon between 1pm and 5pm. All fish were released to fight again. Catching some fall time sunnies and Carp. It just don't get any better! fish

Great post and fish! Looks like you all had a BLAST! If I remember the Wildman of the navidad caught a State Record sunfish on a Carp rig the last time you guys got together for a carp trip.

Lol both were trophys but catching a rod and reel with a fish still on it 15 minutes after it was pulled in was priceless and fitz we should take a trip some day they are a fish all of there own
