    hay guys,we went fishing at alocal lake,we got there at about 9:30 in the morning.(i had been trying to catch a carp for about 4 months now).well anyway i bought some cinnamin millit pack bait,so i put it on my rods and casted it out,well about 15 mins. later my bobber i had hanging from my rod shot up hitting my rod and making a loude sound i rushed to my rod,set the hook,and man i was in for a fight well after about 5 minutes of fighting i got him to the bank and netted him. he tiped the scales at 4 pounds even.not a monster but i was excited.after that i maneged to land to more carp both in the 2-3 1/2 pounds. all in all i had a very good day and came home happy,i took some pics of the carps and will post the as soon as i can.
    oh yea,they were all comman carp and were relesed.

    Nothing Fights better than a good sized Carp. And nothing will pull a rod into the lake faster either. Good job!!
