I have been on a roll in the last month catching large carp. It seems like just about every outing has produced a fish over twenty pounds. Of course I am almost exclusively fishing "big fish waters" and that is contributing to the good numbers of large carp. Today's fish was a large common. I landed it on a new experimental flavor of maize called "salty wild peach berry". It smelled so good, I almost sampled it! The bait was made by a famous US baitmaker that sends me samples from time to time to test out. The stuff really worked today.
I had two rods out. One had the peach berry and the other had chick peas. Besides this big one, I also landed a 14 lber. on the maize. The chick peas, so hot a month ago, did not get a look today. Hey, that's typical of carp fishing where the fish will key on one bait for a while and then go off it.
