Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Headed to Mansfield for the weekend for a funeral. It's become a bit of a joke with the family that we only visit when there's a funeral. Unfortunately, there's a kernel of truth in every joke. On the way there (Thursday), we stopped by Bonnie Doon for the obligatory 'fish-before-we-arrive'. We only...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Headed down to the creek today in warm and humid conditions - in other words, ideal fishing weather! Or so I thought. The fish didn't quite seem to think so - often sniffing, then refusing my bait. I tried a few spots, and managed to entice one bite with my new favourite technique - floating bread c...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Popped down to the creek today for a bit of a fish. For whatever reason, I wasn't feeling confident of catching a fish at all. I noticed someone left their can of corn kernels where I set-up camp. As I haven't used corn for ages, I thought "stuff it, why not?". I loaded up my fly hook with...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Popped down to the creek tonight afterwork. It was hard work! Carp everywhere but seemingly unwilling to take my bait. After trying the humble running sinker rig, which I had a bit of success on at Coburg, and my 'traditional' float set-up, I decided to change tack: floating bread crust. I almost go...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Took a workmate from regional NSW out fishing yesterday. I’ve been meaning to go to Coburg Lake t for a while, but have kept putting it off. Even yesterday when I woke up and it was cloudy outside with a forecast for 18 degrees, I still wasn’t that keen. But boredom took a hold and I finally came to...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Don't you just love it when a plan comes together? Tried a new spot day based on someone's advice on Carp Busters , and I was finally successful in a new spot, landing a 62cm carp. It was a bizarre day. The water here is just inches deep for the most part. When the carp get spooked you can see them ...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Headed to my old haunt TNA today, more for curiosity than anything else. I wasn't really expecting it to be fishable, but secretly hoping it would be. It wasn't. The top pond is a 'water-filter' pool, and the bottom pond, while it has water in it, is quite shallow, full of weed and not really suitab...

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Well it’s been that long that I’ve almost forgot what’s it like to catch a Carp. The annual father/son fish-off at the Carp-infested Taylors Lake on Christmas Day produced only one Carp – and I didn’t even catch it! (For a more detailed account, head on over to Cornacarpio & Co’s Callop and Cod ...

Upgrade time! Just shy of 80cm, taken on bread from Gardiners Creek (12/10/2018).
