This Morning From James And i woke up, I was Called to Make The Breakfast. After a nice Warm Breakfast consisting of Corned beed Hash, Bacon, Eggs, And Biscuits We Set out to a Local Spot on the River With the Want of a Few Common Carp. We Arrived at 10am and Fished till 1pm. the Fishing was Slow at first After I finally Located some Vegetation Near the Right Current Break We Qucikly Baited and Fished the Area. the Carp were There and After a Few Minutes started feeding pretty heavily. the Freaky thing is Right when My Line hit the water and Sank to the Right depth I was getting hits, But i only landed one Carp today. Using 6lb Fluro-Leader i had 3 Common carp snap on the hook set and one pulled the hook out on the run, thats 4 Carp missed. James Also had the similar problem but also did land one. Thats a Good Sign, And Can't wait to get out again For whatever it is We decide to go after.
