Took my buddy Damon out for another carp fishing trip. It was his second time fishing with me for carp, and he had never caught a buffalo before, so I set out with the plan to put him on his first ever buff. The fish lent me a hand (fin?), and we were pulling them in almost as fast as we could cast out. We had six rods between the two of us, and most of the time there was only one or two in the water. I even had a fish take my bait before the weight even hit bottom! First time that's ever happened! All fish were caught on corn with an oats and chili method mix, and were released to fight another day.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
First (non-catfish) fish of the day, my buddy's first ever Smallmouth Buffalo! Not a big one by any means, but a beauty nonetheless. 6lb 2oz.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
His second buff of the day, 10lb 7oz and apparently a good kisser.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
My first (non-catfish) fish of the day, a shiny 7lb 6oz Common Carp.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
My first buffalo of the day, and my new PB of 16lbs! This one was actually a double with an 11lb 14oz buff, but for some reason the camera didn't capture the pic of the other fish.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Second carp of the day for me, little smaller than the other one. We didn't weigh the smaller fish as the action was too hot!



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
His smallest carp yet! This one is actually smaller than any I've caught as well.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I guess at this point in the day the small carp were swarming. He fought very well for his size, though.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
'nother buff for me. 9lb 2oz



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
My fourth buff so far! 7lb 13oz



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Doubled up again! This 9lber had an interesting red mark on this side.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This was the bigger fish of the double, @11lb 2oz.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Finally we both got a fish at the same time, his buff came in at 8lb 1oz and my carp was too little to justify weighing. Had to get the rod back in!

Catch and release. The dream - to catch at least one of every species in our great state (if I can manage to resist carp)!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Last carp of the day for me, another little guy.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
We got lucky right before we had to leave so I could get to work and doubled up again! I'm holding a nice 12lb buff and my buddy has a PB 18lb monster! A great end to a great trip!

(Apparently my first post was too long and these pics weren't showing)

Thanks Banker and Laker! I'm just looking forward to when I don't have to pack up and go to work when they're biting like that. fish
