    Wow on a crappie jig ? Didn't know they would hit those. I know where a few gravel pits are and it has some monster carp in them. Those puppies won't hit anything. Even Big-Red soaked rice crispies ! How were y'all fishin' them jigs ? Fast /slow / bottom / top ?
    I bet that was some fun though !
    Thanks for sharing the pics.

    i think a carp is one of the funnest fish to catch i always have a blast catching them.i know a pond full of them but they want bite a thing so we went down a few times with a light and throw net and caught a few just to see how big the were.we caught one that was a monster and i would love to figure out how to get them to bite.

    Kenny, some people use cut carp for bait (fishin for kats) and seem to have good luck with it. So maybe you might give it a try!!!

    i didnt know they would hit them either but we was just casting them in the curent and cranking them in real slow and would get a hit just about every cast we hooked a couple we couldnt do anything with they would just strip line and never slow down but i had alot of fun with them
