    I'll be fishing the west bank between Michigan and 10th st. starting at around 7pm.
    Anyone welcome to join if interested.
    Look for my white Buick parked along there.

    :0a18: Well, it turned out to be a pretty good evening. WhiteRiverBigCats and I fished the White River parkway on the westside. We were the only two there from 8:00pm 'til 'bout 12:30am. We were packin' up and ready to leave at 12:00 and thats when we finally caught us an 8lb carp. I have to tell ya, that that was my first carp and boy was it fun. I know I haven't had a fish put up that big of fight. It really makes you feel like you accomplished something.

    You would think that we would have stayed longer, but I had to be the Fishin' Pooper and made the decision to leave, because I have to get up and go to work in the morning.

    While we were leaving we met a couple guys from another fish forum, and we of course had to tell them about the BOC catfish1.com. So, I'm sure we will have two more members to had to the Brotherhood.

    We will try and get the picture of my fist carp posted so you all can see.

    We were really hoping that we would see some of you out there this evening.

    I do know that Shane aka WhiteRiverBigCats will be back out there tomorrow evening around 8:00pm. I may join him later, but not sure yet.

    Sorry to say my plans got foiled at the last minute and I couldn't make it out this time.
    Hopefully I'll get there this weekend sometime.
    Congrats on the carp you caught!

    Congrats on the nice carp. There are some serious hogs in that river. I've caught them up to 17lbs out of there and seen many others that could push 20-24lbs. Fishing below the lowhead dam in Broadripple one day, we were wading across and the carp were trying to swim up the falls as we call them, and one that had to of been 21lbs, rushed up out of the pools below the falls and nailed the side of my leg and I had a net in my hand and tried to get him but missed, that would have been one heck of a photo opp. even though it wasen't hook and line caught. Wish I could have got out on the river though lastnight, sure would have beat the heck out of having to get up early this morning.

    Yeah, lightening is bad news. And heavy rains for me when I'm wading is bad news too. I've been caught on the wrong side of the river before when the water started to rise and I wasen't into crossing back to where I parked and having to walk to the nearest bridge. Boy is that one long, wet walk carrying all my tackle.:embarassed:

    Yes it has been awhile. I had a blast fishing Austin,TX for three months. How's that for a session?
    Patrick and I made our trip up north. Huge killer mosquitoes, cold rain, thunder/lightning, nothing detered him. We gave two locations he had a shot, nothin. Then I took him to one of my honey holes. Right away he got a 10#+, he was all smiles, b4 we left he got another 21#. Instant Carper. He's hooked. Got a feeling we'll be seeing more of him. Great Guy, Great Fisherman.
