    Kev, I went away two weekends ago specifically targeting carp in a Mates dam on his vineyard however from the 8 carp we got none of them were under the 30cm mark.

    The dam looks great, wouldn't mind one like that in my back yard. Keep trying H&C

    Just a reminder TBX's the Carpafun has still not been won. I know we had a few issues uploading pictures but that problem was fixed a while ago. I'm looking forward to seeing a load of carp pictures posted.

    No probs...I have allocated some time in early September to finish the comp off! Can you confirm Kev that by the process of elimination, the mystery length is between 9 and 30 cm's?
    cheers

    I haven't been out much during the last few weeks. The only trips I've had have been down the beach chasing Gummy's.

    I haven't bothered chasing mud marlin for a while but I'll put up a couple of photos from trips earlier in the year.

    At least you have had a variety, CJ, the last carp is a pretty one. Cheers, creekboy.

    I'll agree with that. So that's another clue. Have you ever tried using buttons as bait, I hear a lot of things get caught on them. And it's great fun collecting them to.

    No...I couldn't use buttons! As you said...they are more of a collectable! Once I got my hands on them I don't think I could let go!

    May be a while before I go on a dedicated carp hunt. Plans over the next week involve either going to Bonnie Doon or Beechworth and then chasing cod here. There is always a chance of carp as by catch tho.
    Cheers

    One of two carp from the other day. The other one was 70! From memory, I already entered one around this size with no luck so not expecting much. Will have to wait til next time for glory!
    28cms.
