Carp Expedition ?

Well we didn't catch any carp (that would be me and Aaron) but we sure had fun.

Here's Aaron fishing "side saddle" from the yak.


Here I am taking off for "points unknown".


Here's one of my five "BIG FISH" !!!


Here are me and Aaron "chillin" at lunch time on a rock.


It was a fun day. I caught 3 bream, a green sunfish (the big one above), and a bass.
Aaron caught..... a sunburn :-).

Trying something new...

On the 13th and 14th I'm going to a gathering at Grapevine to learn the fine art of carp fishing. I've never fished for carp or buffalo on purpose. The guy who is heading it up says "learn to catch fish like this".

Would that be cool or what?

Anyway, I'll spend Friday night and Saturday learning the tricks for catching big carp. Oh, did I mention "from the kayak"?

Should be lots of fun. Watch for the reports and pics.


"Are you grumpy?"
"Maybe you need to do more fishin."

This weeks adventures...

I was off Wed, Thur, Fri, Sat, and all day Sunday and got lots of fishing and kayaking time in. I fished every one of those days at Waterloo Lake and cleaned up on crappie, sunfish, and sand bass. Thursday night Aaron and I got into the crappie just as it was getting dark and caught one on every cast. In fact I trolled back to the boat ramp and had to stop at least twice and take big ole crappie off of my line.

I did some modifications to the 9.5 ft yak last week and I have fallen back in love with it all over again. It now has a permanently mounted fish finder as well as a 360 degree light in addition to all of it's other accessories. The 14 footer seems to be better suited to Aarons height and build anyway so it is becoming the "buddy yak" and the 9.5er is my go to boat now.

Here's how she looked Sunday at Waterloo.


Is that sexy or what???

Okay, I've gotta get back to work.
Until next time, keep your lines tight.
