    I agree. I had an 18 gallon tank in my center console. Whether it was 90 in KY or 95 in the FL Keys, I set the auto pump on a 3 minute delay, and it would run for 1 minute. With a 500 GPH pump I was...

    Re: Back on the Carp!!!

    I use a 5wt all the time on 6# plus carp. It's all about rod angle and hand tension.

    With that said, I often use a 7wt to make long casts to spooky fish easier.

    Re: Am i the only on who dislikes Fluorocarbon ?

    Make sure you soak your knot before pulling it tight. Fluoro creates more friction than mono, thus more heat, and will actually burn itself a little making the line very weak.
