  1. I seem to have much better luck after about three times of chumming with boiled birdseed, oats, corn. I suppose that makes sense, but I live 45 min. from my favorite lake. Anyone have a good tactic for one trip sessions? Flyrod
  2. Until recently I had only ever caught two carp besides a flyrod.....I can tell you that tailing carp are feeding, so if you get a wooly [censored] in front of them without scaring them by moving it toward them, you should catch one. When a carp sees a nymph, crawfish, helgramite, minnow, etc. close enough to catch, it will eat it. By making sure the carp sees it, then bringing it away (fleeing from) the carp may chase and eat it, otherwise it will scare the carp instead. You may catcharp on a floating fly as well. Use a catterpiller or mayfly imitation coasted overhead, and subtle twitching at the proper moment can induce a strike! Good luck....its a lot of fun!!
  3. It sometimes (most times) takes a day or so for the carp to find and become comfortable with your chum. That said, you may use more than initially expected. Don't worry, you will be on the right track, just keep chumming your spot, and soon you'll get bites!
  4. I have ben getting rained on (and all my gear) lately and been thinking of different ways to stay dry. Mostly thinking of this topic while taking a good soaking LOL Anyway, has anyone made their own portable bivy? or does everyone just buy one?
  5. ok bud...I have had my share of Mitchell reels over the years and liked them a lot. I just wanted that dual drag system on my carp reels so I don't lose them all the time! LOL
  6. I have been making a pack bait for use in my method rigs, which uses panko crumbs, jello, whole kernel canned sweet corn, and garbonzo beans (chic peas). This recepie I got online from Luke at catfishandcarp.com See how this is used on youtube, and then you'll know as much as I do LOL....it works for me!
  7. I don't know how the Mitchell reels are constructed, or how well the drag is assembled, but for the money I'd recommend checking out the KastKing Sharky bait feeder 3000 reels. They are quality made, and the two I bought have stood up well to carp up to 25 lbs, trying to bury in the weeds. I would buy these reels again for sure.
