Hi all,

I have visited the Colorado River this weekend for a little fishing. The weather was a bit chilly with that 8 Celsius but the water was nice. The carps were biting quite nicely. at least this is how i felt for the first time. I caught 15+ carps (common/grass) and the average weight was around 15lb. I caught around 7 common weight between 17 - 20lb. Sometimes the carps came as a couple smile There were 2 surprises.

1) this is more a funny story. So i had a strong catch on one of my rod and when i raised the rod the line just teared due to mussels, i guessed. I felt it ws a nice fish. Anyway i was quite angry for a while. BUT 3 hours later i caught a carp with my previous hook laugh I can not believe that this carp came back, was feeding and i caught it. What are the ods? smile smile smile It never happened to me before. I was laughing a lot. I attached a picture for that.

2) the carp size started to increase each by each. the place became extremely promising. Then a beautiful guest arrived. my PB grass carp in the US. A beautiful 32 lb grass carp. I cant express how happy i was. When I started to fish there my target was 1 carp smile It became a fantastic weekend and time.

After this i was thinking who knows what else will surprise me. Well it turned out quiet fast when the first 2 jet ski arrived and a boat around 1:30 pm. I got nothing after that point and basically every 20 minutes something was going through. A guy even started to jump into the river in front of me from the boat. I could not decide that he cant see me that i am fishing or just did not care. Anyway this time i missed a bit Europe where no one using boats etc on the fishing lakes.

1 more thing. Last time i forgot to mention that i am using Feeder rods. I have added picture as well. I read an old topic that someone was curious about it. Maybe it is interesting a bit. Iam using 2 rods. that is the practice in Hungary .I have never used 3 rods in a time. I have tried out now for fun. My rods are 3.6M and 3.9M. I think other would say 12" and 13". Both Heavy feeder and i am using 4 OZ tips.

Excellent post. Those are some really nice fish. As for the number of rods, I use 4 almost all the time and 5 or 6 most of the time. My record is 6 fish on at once and I landed five of those. Of course it took about an hour to untangle everything once the action stopped lol. Keep the pictures coming. That is a beautiful grass carp!

Awesome! Pretty crazy that fish bit twice, he must've really liked your bait! Congrats on the PB Grasser! Feeder fishing is super cool, glad to see someone using it over here. Been thinking of getting a feeder rod or two myself.


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

Well the base was simple creamy corn + oat + grits
the bait was a kind of special pellet what i brought from Hungary. It is balanced with strong aroma.
