Fishing for big Carp with Eric

Fishing for big Carp with Eric

Jack was in Springfield, MO visiting his sister and mother recently and fished with Eric. They fished for carp and longnose gar (Lepisosteus osseus). Caught carp (huge carp), but only teased the gar. Fun time. Thanks Eric.

This is Wilson’s Creek near Springfield. Jack was surprised at finding huge carp in this kind of water. Not very deep.

Fly Fishing the Bitterroot – surprised with trico/bass fishing

Large mouth bass from the middle Bitterroot River

Jack and Doug fished the trico hatch and a big surprise was this large bass! They did catch some trout, no pike, and of course this significant bass.

Update!!! Above is only part of the story. When I asked Jack more about how he caught this bass, the whole story came together.  They WERE fishing the trico hatch until it was done. When the day got warmer and sunnier, they switched to the 9 wt rod and pike flies. They were fishing for pike in a slow section near a backwater and they caught this bass there. So that is the rest of the story. My apologies for not getting all the info in the first place. (Merle)
