Big Bass on Carp bait 9 Years ago Karma: 0
My son and I were fishing on a local reservior yesterday ( the only ones fishing carp in this neck of the woods) when I had a strong take on my ultralite rig. After a fairly epic battle we were shocked to net a 9 lb+ black bass! This is by far my largest bass and on homemade carp bait. Needless to say the bass anglers were livid. Shortly thereafter I landed a 9 lb common carp on the same rig. The carp was the more powerful, dogged fighter tearing up the bottom and striking my son a blow in the groin as he attempted to net it! This puts to rest any doubt in my mind as to which is the stronger fighting fish. Carpe Diem and have fun...

Congrats on the nice catch! It certainly seems all types of fish are caught on carpbait. I have caught everything from bass to trout to catfish (including my pb 22 lb. channel cat) and even sturgeon. Always a nice surprise!

Very nice bass! I caught one about 4 pounds a number of years ago on a clam snout while fishing for catfish. My friend caught a 6 pound largemouth 2 years ago on a bluegill head while fishing for catfish. Those bass will eat about anything.

Haha, yes bass are not very picky if they're hungry. And people say carp are dumb...

Coming from England i used to catch all kinds of fish other than carp on boilies, including; roach, rudd, tench, eels, bream, catfish, barbell & trout, but by far the biggest supprise i had was when a screaming take transformed into a 16 lb PIKE hooked fairly through the chops!!!. Guess i can look forward to catching some more oddities over here as well. Happy fishing
