Snags

Got out Saturday and today ... no fish today ... Saturday I got a few.  Using the 12 foot maddragon rod would definitely make landing fish on your own a challenging task.

Saturday had two landed, one missed hookset, and had one line sawed off (probably on zebra mussels).

WTG Snags . Using a 12' rod helps keep the line away from rocky drop offs but can be a challenge landing fish solo .

I find it easier to set the butt end of the rod firmly on the ground ,slightly behind me at 90 degrees (approx) with only about 12' of line & have the net on a 39* angle. The carp usually cruise right into the net . ...then the thrashing begins......my slacks are all nicely slimed and splattered with mud & algae when I'm done ....and THAT is the mark of success !  :Gonefishing:.
