I’ll find out tomorrow morning if I’m “dialed in” or not.

I’m hoping to burn up some gear..

Well I didn’t get out for carp. Seems I had a lot on my plate for an old retired/ un-retired guy. I did toss some flies for gills with little success.

But,  all is well and I’ll get out tomorrow morning for some carp. Don’t have much longer for this particular spot. Weeds are going to be an issue if they aren’t already.

your post have got me thinking of carp fishing.  i came in this morning and was checking out some vids.  came across this one of carp taking baits.  its amazing how many reject the bait.  it must be in heavily fished waters or something.

some fishermen tell lies,  this one doesnt need to

You might think so, but it generally takes a few pick ups before successfully hooking one most times. I have a water wolf camera, and have watched carp pick up baits countless times before being hooked. I have prioritized rigs that reset themselves and it has paid dividends.

As in I have made it a priority to only use rigs that reset themselves.

As far as not knowing your bait has been picked up. Most times you would never know. As tight as you can get your lines the carp can still spit your bait before it registers at the rod tip.
