Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Don't think it's a SP, as I've caught a few of them before. A rudimentary Google search tells me that Karkarook Lake has, in fact, been stocked with Estuary Perch, so I'm reasonably confident it's an EP.

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

This relatively warm-weather has got me out of my now traditional 'hibernation' mode during the football season. With the creek looking very turgid, I was forced to entertain other options. This press release certainly got my attention: https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/new-murray-cod-fishing-opportuni...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Had one bite for the day (apart from a minute Redfin that I didn't even realise it was hooked) and this was it - a 60cm bottom-dwelling Carp, which put up a great fight, as is typically the custom a Carp of this size. Taken on Corn. Was a bit lucky to get it I reckon, as I said, didn't have a bite b...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Headed down to the creek today for a change of pace, which is a bit different (and more challenging) than the 'still water' fishing I've been doing of late. The first spot I went to yielded 3 very timid nibbles for not much return. The second spot went to wasn't much better - Carp everywhere - but t...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Despite the ideal conditions today, I only landed 2, just before dark. The sun was out, it was quite warm - the fish should be biting - or so I thought, but it simply wasn't the case. The bread I was using was quite old and crusty, so I actually did a supermarket run mid-fish to get some corn. It wa...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Seem to be getting them 70cm or above with regular monotony now. Not sure whats changed since the past (when 70cm was my 'bogey' size) other than the fact that I've had a bit more luck. The only thing I can possibly put it down to is the 4000 size reel with slightly heavier line. In the past I almos...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Bit of a change of pace from last outing (My arms are still sore from the last session :P ). Headed up to a local pond, where despite the near perfect conditions, the Carp weren't very receptive to my offerings. I was literally walking home when I spotted a Carp in another section, and thought "OK, ...

I used to feel self-conscious about fishing urban environments, don't anymore though...
