|Some serious carpage there Pete!|
Pete is super psyched too. He has only caught one carp before and that fish was a nice one but it was in the weeds and didn't get to do what carp normally do... this one was a different ballgame. He cast to it, saw the take and the fish took off. It wasn't a huge one but his smile was! He was pumped to have his feet on the ground when he got it too.
My carp was a tad bigger and a first for me- the first carp I have caught barefoot and shirtless! Pretty fun actually! Lovely fish too.
Pete hit a nice smallie after we chased drum for a bit. The big ones weren't playing but the smaller guys did. I hit a decent one with a new crawfish pattern (pics up soon I promise) and then I got a smallmouth. He wanted in on the Champlain Flats Slam... so we found him a nice lil puppy drum. They are fun fish for sure! His first too.
So you can see we had a lot of fun getting our Lake Champlain Flats Slam... do you want one now? Hit me up and lets talk!
|Right on! Great take with this fish- we both got to see it!|
|Pete's grin tells the whole story!|
|Drum are a blast when you get them on the fly! The big ones are on the list...|
|Pete's first drum... bigger ones to follow!|
