|Jackie and over 60 lbs of carp
Who would have thought a small creek in Nashville , Ar. would have tons of hungry carp! Jackie Matthews
Fishing with friends , they managed to catch over 200 lbs of carp in a couple of hours!
Minnows and worms
were used to catch some of these giant fish of the south, but not before exchanging 3 reels and having to use heavy
treble hooks, because the fish were bending the no. 7 eagle claw hooks and getting loose!
I started with a zebco
33, they broke that, then a larger model, they broke that as well, The folks in Wal Marts sporting goods, finally said you
gotta get a bigger reel! So one more exchange.... this time a open face zebco 808.
The fish were laying eggs at the time.
they would eat anything that approched there nest. You could just toss a minnow out, and it the fight was on before the bait
The real fight was getting those fish out of the water once you had then close to the bank.
where Muscle comes to play.... in order to get them ashore without breaking your rod or line. you had to grab
them and hoist them to the bank! Jackie doesnt need a gym to work out in,,, just keep pulling in those moster
