Weightless by my twin caught the 1st carp within 3 mins!
Then came the slip sinker rig by Bscurderi!
This was the most effective and we all switched to it eventually.
The wind kicked up and so did the moon. We sat there until 2:45am when the beast hit! I landed my biggest fish yet........
A 10lb 2oz carp at 28inches!
So with my 7 carp, Bscuderi's 10 carp, and Evil TDT's 1 carp we hit the sleeping bags with smiles at 3:15am.
Then we were up at 6am to attack the pike.
We launched from Oasis and made our way to my spot. Sure enough within a half hour I had a pike snap me off.....must have been weakened line from the bell for the carp the night before. So within another 30mins I had a beast pike on the end of my line.
After a few minutes of battle the silly pike let go and left me skunked for the day. Bscuderi was the captain and he was determined to knock the pikey off his list of bucketeering. Luckily after a few missed bites and lots of snags he received his wish.
By 1pm the wind got really nasty and we bailed. It was nice to be the only fisherman out there till noon. A whole Yuba for the taking! I doubt I will get that this weekend.
