Conversations With Carp - Charlie Says Hello To Lake Carp

Last Wednesday, Charlie and yours truly were fishing for lake carp and we knew very well we were drifting uncharted waters. 

Somehow, and luckily, I managed to begin a dialogue with a very nice carp and this was the first lake carp I've ever caught.

Not to be outdone, Charlie returns the very next day and captures his first ever lake carp and misses a couple of more.

Charlie took his carp on his favored San Juan worm, a feat he has pulled off many times in the past couple of years.

We are hopeful the carp will keep returning to the more shallow sea-lane to feed.  This will be our only chance of continuing our conversations with these creatures.  The main lake is too big and way too deep for us to have any chance of meeting these fish at all. 

Hopefully, our conversations will continue.

My carpin is pond fishing, the big water I have little access to, but I have done some and found them shallow at times in my reach. Some very large, wish I had more of that. Sounds like you guys figured them out this time!

Not sure we've figured em out yet Gregg, but trying. Yesterday, we were talking about indicators and how to use them. I share with Charlie everything you've shared about indicators.
