    apparently i catch carp by trying to catch blue gills...let me rephrase that...i MISS carp while attempting to catch gills on minnow hooks. last 2 times ive been carping ive been skunked..went to catch soem abit the other night and got my hooks straightened on a dead run by 2 carp in a row..just seconds apart not 3 feet in front of me... yeah thats right I am the Carp master HAHA :smile2:

    I bet if I had the heavy rig downt here using worms i wouldnt have gotten a nibble.

    I know how you feel. I was trying to target grass carp a few weeks ago. Developed a pack that I thought would work, put a cherry tomato on the hair rig. Lost something good, tried more and kept catching cats on the tomato. Frustrated I decided to try for common carp. Change flavor, pack and hook bait. 5 minutes later I was reeling in a grass carp.
