I like to eat bbq, cook bbq, read about it and blog about it; but in recent months I've been doing a little less barbecuing and a lot more fishing. Not bass or crappie fishing - carp fishing. I can hear the groans as you read this all the way in Michigan, but before you dismiss my "second" hobby because "it's just carp" take a look at these pictures.
I caught these fish in late October in a 30 minute period. I fished for bass, blue gill and crappie for a lot of years, but never caught anything this big let alone 2 of them within 30 minutes.
I think I can work bbq into this new way to pass the time also. Sometimes it can take a couple of hours to get a bite, so that leaves plenty of time for cooking some barbecue too.
I have also created a new blog to document my fishing and to hopefully raise some money for charity at the same time. Please check it out. It's called Michigan Carp Fishing
. With the new fishing blog I am hoping to help raise money for lupus research.
