They may not be monsters, but they readily strike a bait. Found an over flow that has numerous carp in it. So with limited access to fishing in west Texas. The quest began, I used chocolate powder mixed to canned biscuit dough. All fishing is sight fishing or dropping to gulpers feeding on Elm blooms floating the stream. I got 5 strikes and landed three, one was lost to a bicycle frame, the other I flat missed. The rumor is that several of the year round playa's have carp in them, the age old trick of finding access to them

Nice fish! Even the little ones put up a great fight!


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