    The carp on my home water began spawning a couple weeks late, probably due to the cool spring we’ve been having. I stuck this pig and hung on for a wild ride.

    Usually head shot carp don’t go balistic, but this one was an exception. She bottomed out my 25# fish scale so I don’t know what she’ll weigh.

    Nice one Lee!!!!
    I was down at Yellowstone State Park in Blanchardville yesterday. The north shoreline was totally “erupting” with carp doing their thing!!!

    If I had a boat, that’s where I’d be shooting right now! It was crazy how thick they were in there. I have never seen it like that before! Can’t shoot them in most of the places in the park though. The park ranger did give me the lowdown on exactly where a person could shoot some on the lake from shore.

    I didn’t have anything to bring them home in though. πŸ˜•

    Lungbuster, I called this morning and left a message. It turns out you didn’t miss much. They turned off around 8:30 AM but I got 4 good ones prior to that. This was the first day since June 15th that I’ve seen any spawning activity locally. Weird spawning cycle on the home water. Typically the spawn starts heating up around Memorial Day and is over a week after that. The last two years it’s been sporadic, spanning the first three weeks of June.

    I meant to call you back, had family things to do today, maybe later this week they’ll heat up.
