    As a boy I was up early one morning at the lake cabin. Bullheads had spawned 2 nights before in the shallow mud bottom areas. When I approached the water I could see the whole area was full of carp. They would not bite anything, period. ...

    I love catching them on light tackle. A 20 lb carp on light spinning tackle with 20 lb spectra braid line will scare ya. That first blistering run can rip 150 yards of line off before you can turn them. Its hang on and listen to the drag scream....

    Normally I like to run 50% COWW and 50% range scrap or soft lead. To which I will add 1-2 % tin/pewter. I have some lino cast up in 300 gr bullets, makes it easy to add a bit more tin where needed. I also finally after 3 years of looking hit...

    If you look at the Lyman cast bullet handbook it has a 300 grain loaded with fast powders it may be a good place to. Hope this helps some. Personally I use 6.5 grains of red dot and a 300gr -340. My 340gr is the most accurate by far but my 300 is...

    I suspect it is all in the sausage. Salt and pepper also help, pepper in particular. My wife and I have been discovering that Cavendish greek seasoning adds a nice bit of flavor to foods that have grown tasteless with age. Might try it.
