Hey everyone. I think the last post I made was in 2009. Gosh - what hasn't happened since then. I graduated school, married my amazing wife, moved to SC (while on active duty in the USN), a year later moved to NC (for 3 yrs), bought a house, bought a boat, deployed to Afghanistan, was blessed with an amazing daughter (who received her first fishing pole before she was even born), sold a boat, bought another boat, sold a house in NC, and then moved back to NJ. Phew (that was a busy 4 years !) We should be buying our permanent house in Southern NJ this Spring. I'm still active duty Navy, but should "jump ship" in 2015. Now onto fishing !
This past Sunday, I returned to my trusty Carpin' fishing hole after 4 years. I prebaited it Saturday night. Had no luck from 9-11 AM on Sunday, but came back at 3 PM (sun had rotated and I was now fishing in the shade) and it was great ! 3 big common's. I don't have a scale and sling (I want to get that and a good unhooking mat for these big boys). Funny - I caught one on a hair rig and the other 2 on a regular small hook with 4 pieces of sweet corn. One pulled my rod completely into the water - 1 second longer and it would have been out of reach ! I will try and post a picture of that monster. Glad to be back and to see some familiar names on here !! (Let's see if i can post all 3)
