View Full Version : Carp-O-Rama

It was just my oldest boy and I on Father's Day this year. We loaded up the guns, and bows for the weekend to see what we could find. We shot a few gophers on Saturday, but I told him I want to find some carp for him to shoot. He has never been able to stick a carp with his bow. I've been trying to explain what it's really like if you find a spawning group of carp. I told him it's just crazy how many, and how easy it is to shoot them.

So we woke up and drove to an area that I had never been carp fishing before. I knew the area and thought it might just be a great spot to try out. When we walked up to the waters edge, both of our mouths just dropped. My son got excited. I then told him he was about to get more dirty than he has ever been. I was right. I had to drag him off the water after 7 hours of shooting. The day will go down as one of the best moments I have had with one of my kids.







This is about a 1/3 of what we shot. I stopped counting after 200.

I think most would agree, that once in a while everything falls into place for all of us that hunt or fish and we end up with these kind of days..........THEY ARE THE BEST! CONGRATS!
