|I was on a discovery theme for most of the year. Here is a|
nice 20 + lb. common that I landed in a new spot
on the CT River in CT.
Numbers don't always tell the complete story. This was a year in which I landed very good numbers of decent fish from the high teens all the way up to 30 lbs. plus. The biggest mirror that I landed was a whopping 32 lbs. while the biggest common tipped the scales at 28+ pounds. Both were caught on a combo bait of maize and artificial corn fished on the hair rig.
|Biggest carp fo the year for me was this hog of a mirror that|
tipped the scales at 32 lbs.
I did my best this year in in CAG's Big 4 Tournaments. I came in second place the the Spring Big 4 (106 lbs., 4 oz.) and third place in the Fall Big 4 (106 lbs., 4 oz). Both were my best finishes in those events.
I usually begin my year hoping to land about 500 carp. Catching close to a thousand fish far exceeded this goal, It was a great year for me.
