Hey Guys and Gals......

Ive been watching the carp/buff/gar posts here on the forum for years now, but have never posted. I have caught my share of carp intentionally and unintentionally over the years. Dont get me wrong, I definitely would not consider myself a carp/buff guru or expert. I am however getting more and more curious about all the new (to me) gear and methods. Ive began to be more and more tempted to start carping again after so many years since I intentionally targeted them.

I am familiar with South & North Lakes Parks in Denton and used to always look for Mike Dorans posts. Does anyone know if he is still around? Kind of seems to have fallen off the radar.

On that note......Are there any carpers here in the Denton/Far North Texas area?? I am in the Denton/Sanger area and 5 minutes from Ray Roberts. Anyone fish locally to me??

I only know him through others so I can't say with certainty, but I hear he still fishes. Maybe someone with more info or even Mike himself will chime in!

If you're interested I'm hosting a fish-in at Lake Ray Hubbard July 13th, details here: ACS Fish-In @ Hubbard

You're more than welcome to come! No need to bring anything other than yourself and a fishing license fish


Catch and release. The dream - to catch one of every species of Freshwater fish in our great state! If only I can resist Carp...

I'm still in Denton. Taking a little break from fishing after a koi saved my life from cancer.

Up to 11 different freshwater species for big fish awards. But they said I can't have the elite angler award twice! Lol

Not getting the same fishing award twice......That sounds like a pretty good problem to have if ya gotta have one!!!

But yeah......Thanks for the reply Mike. Glad to see you are still around!! Ill be sending a PM to ya with contact info if and when you are up for a chit chat.

Thanks to you as well WhiteRockJesse for the reply and giving Mike a heads up on my post!! Maybe if things go right there might be a trip in our future.
