Maybe I should go for carp ??
Well I have been seeing all this talk about catching carp in this forum. I have a fishing hole in a river that holds carp because I see them swimming around. They go 2 feet plus in size. They are kinda trapped in this hole until water rises again so they can journey out of it. I only have a 5/6 rod using 5X leader and tippet. I thought this would be way to light of tackle, ...but from what I am reading, I see most of you use the same rod. Anyhow no one messes with these carp and I might give it a try
