Default Carp Fishing - 6/14/17

Got out for a few hours today on the canal sight fishing for shallow carp. Landed 11 total and wish i had my scale for a couple of them. Two fish were super long and had just recently dropped their eggs, i could see the stretch marks and loose skin around their bellies. All fish were caught with pop-up corn rigs.

Nice carp!

I am such a slug in that I have not even purchased my fishing license yet so no fishing for me

They're super effective but need to be used with either chum or a pack bait.

Great info. I've been fishing the Chicago river in the loop lately and once I have some Carp catches was going to post some pics. This rig is gonna be very helpful.

I lost a large leather Carp the other day. Dying to start landing the beasts. There are a lot of fish in the loop, and hardly any fishermen!
