Look what I came across a couple days ago.........



Mostly buffs and a few carp mixed in. The carp were smart and stayed closer to the downed timber. The buffs, if they spooked, they would be back in a minute. You could have shot quite a few this way. Actually I could have reached down and petted a couple of them if I really wanted to.

I managed to hook 2 carp, I got them to take very small jigs (Trout Magnet) but both of them broke my 6 lb test. The second one just ran straight under a tree and broke off. But watching a carp literally 5 feet under your nose eat a jig that you are twitching in front of it.... that's pretty cool. These were wild, not tame or fed...

If I had a bow with me I would have gladly shot a few of them, but I would rather watch one eat a jig than force feed it an arrow! Anyway thought you all would like to see the pic.... the location is.... classified


Edit: here is the video of the carp eating the jig (you can't see the jig because it was same color as the mud) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaG_os8CTA0

They've been stacked up like that all down the Duck for the last few weeks, Catman.

hmm I'm at the duck at the moment but haven't seen the first buff. However I'm directly below the dam looking for rockfish or some kind of bait for catfish (forgot the cast net) and there are no buffs here at the moment. I did see a rockfish busting shad a few minutes ago... Good sign

I'm not saying you're wrong, Catman, but I've never seen or heard about a rockfish in the Duck River that far up. I assume you were below Town Dam in Columbia? I've heard of folks catching them down towards Waverly but never that far up river(132 miles).

I have only heard of them being caught there a couple different times from people on this forum, so I can't say for sure, but I saw a good sign of one chasing baitfish below the dam so I think there may be a few in there.

I've seen or heard about smallmouth, largemouth, spots, sauger, walleye, rock bass, crappie, bluegil, musky, channels, flatheads, white bass, and even a piranha(Shelbyville). But never a rockfish. I would have to see pictures to believe it.

I will be down there again trying to catch them sometime. If I do catch one I will definitely take pics.
