    I went to my usual hole today at the creek, and started fishing with some canned sweet corn. I caught 2 carp, a 24 incher, and a 31 incher. Then, still using corn on the bottom, I caught a 17 inch smallie!! lol:big_smile: I didn't ever expect to catch a bass on corn on the bottom!!! I guess that just shows you to "expect the unexpected."

    Hey, good deal, Josh, glad you got a couple today.

    I went fishing this evening. Got started around 6:30 pm. But, I was not targeting carp. I was experimenting with a bank fished, drop shot rig for panfish. I caught one small, smallmouth. However, the carp were very active and jumping everywhere. So, finally I broke out the corn at 8 pm and fished until 9 pm. But, never got a run or even a peck/tap. For, whatever reason, where I fish, I usually catch most of my carp between 7 and 8 pm. Although, I did get one on at 6:15 pm a week or more ago.
