Why not... There's meatpoles so let's have a Fish'pole... Already seen some giant fish so far so let's add them to this.

After a turkey kill Sunday I got on the water and put a few in the boat. Some "golden salmon" ;-) and a buffulo fish.

Nice job to all!

Question, what are you guys doing with that many carp, do you smoke them or are they garden fertilizer?

From: Sawyer
03-May-16
We usually dump them out back for the varmints and vultures, they make good fertilizer but a bunch of scales and bones doesn't go over good in the garden. I did try pickling some last year, wasn't to bad but not worth the hassle IMO.

Nice! Buddy and I were up at Pymatuning again yesterday. We shot about 14 carp. Biggest was about 8 pounds. Time to clean my boat since it is covered in blood. That's a good thing!!

Not a bow kill.... but ^X tippet and leader make things interesting.

From: HerdManager

Never seen anyone long-arm a fish that much. Look at that, gotta be a 15 pound fish! It's wider than your body!!

Why do people do that? It doesn't make the fish look bigger, and it's not a bowkill......
