Those mirror carp are cool looking for sure.


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

Two "Mirror Carp" in one day! That's worth a thread all it's own, Jerry.

Never heard of mirror carp, had to look them up. Apparently they were introduced to North America in the mid-1800's along with the common carp. I guess they just didn't thrive as well as their cousins. Apparently they can reach 80lbs,

When I fished them we used a stout #4 short shank hook. For bait we threaded whole kernel corn on it and let it sit on the bottom. They really do fight.


Some mornings I wake up grouchy. Some mornings I let her sleep.

Nice, the spear is fun too. I've really enjoyed speaking pike during winter the last few years
