Good morning all!

Well looks like afternoon to most

Going on my first carp hiatus in about ten years, leaving the Chicago area for South Carolina 4/14 this is where I have my most found memories of carp outings. In my younger days carp tournaments in pay lakes was a great time had, the really big fish came from the Hartwell Lake reservoir and the smaller Broadway Lake. Both lakes We have the common, grass and a mirror population the mirror being much smaller and not even sure how they got in the lakes? Colors range from a muddy rusty gold, the sleek silver look and some blacks. My biggest in 30 years has been a 49 pounder from the Broadway lake in 1984

Reading this forum my entire carping differs from the rigs, baits, strategy etc. than I am used to, you may even call it simple?

Rigs: Zebco 33 on a 6'6 ugly stick rod, wound with 12 pound test Stren yellow gold florescent line, a dual swivel with eagle claw 2/0 snelled hooks (2)

Ground Spike rod holders

Baits: Whole kernel canned corn, dough balls made with simple loafs of bread and maybe some commercial pack baits?

Now back in pay lake competitions we went through all sorts of concoctions rice mixtures, cereals, and a variety of condiments.

I will do some series pics and videos of the trip mid April is a great carp time in South Carolina.

Hello everyone.
New to this site and have just returned to fishing after 20 years messing about with music and doing all nighters of a different kind.
Looking forward to some warm weather and fish on the bank.
Hope to speak with you all soon.

Ola,

Very fine Forum you have here, sadly still not offering Beer on tap though I see . Have been a reader on and off for quite a while but since selling my business I now have a lot more time on my hands so thought it was about time I pulled up the proverbial chair and joined in.

First I would just like to mention some people have told me I am a bit strange. The reason I believe is because I do all my fishing with a Centre Pin Reel. It started around 10 years ago when my father hooked into a rather large Barbel and got me to take over as he was bursting for a piss! I have not looked back since.

Around 4 years ago I picked up two Ray Walton Rolling Pins these allow me to cast around 70 meters and I have been a happy larry since.

Look forward to shooting the poo with you all .

PS no I do not wear a floppy hat :P

Hi all,

First time on a fishing forum, mainly because I've only just taken up fishing again for the first time since my teenage years (many moons ago!)

Currently doing a spot of coarse fishing in the lakes in and around Liverpool. Glad to be onboard, and hope to re-learn all those forgotten tips and tricks off you esteemed members...

Cheers,

Chris.
