Anytime your in the area, we would be privileged to fish with you guys. We can take you anywhere from our favorite trout spots, to hidden carp holes, and even to our local ponds for a shot at some 8lb Largemouth. Hit us up anytime at and let us know.

Bare with us over the next couple of months as we are going to try and change the name of the blog to shorten it up a bit and launch a legit new site full of the same awesome content.

Remember, the Carp Week Photo Contest ends in 5 hours, at NOON so send in your pictures for a chance to win some legit gear from the above sponsors.

  1. What you guys have done is really cool. I can't wait for next year. I have one wish that won't become reality. That is for my Fish and Game Dept. to treat common carp as the game fish it is and use their eradication policy very selectively. A destination 100 miles from my driveway went from absolute super carpin to few sighted in a day in the space of a few years. I thought natural this and natural that but then stumbled upon their electro shocking culling done over the last few years. Sites like yours may help change minds of anglers, but bureaucracies, doubtful.
