    Hi Guys,

    Got two more carp today. One was 7 lbs 3 oz and the other was 4 lbs 13 oz. Both caught on canned corn (hair rigged).

    Got to my fishing hole at about 5:30 pm EDT. And, once again, no activity began until after 7 PM. I caught the first one (7 lb 3 oz) at 7:15 and the 4 lb 13 oz at 7:45. Had several other taps but never another run.

    I have attached pix of the fish. No one else there today to take pix of the fish and me together.

    You might notice in the pix the old reels I was using (now antique I think) Garcia/Mitchell 308 and 408 ultralite reels. I bought these reels back in the early to mid 70's. Top of the line (I think) back during that era. Anyway, they are not nearly as smooth or as quiet as today's reels. But, believe it or not you can still catch fish with them and have a ball.
