Many apologies to everyone, I have been too busy to keep up with this website though I have been fishing quite a bit and had some fantastic catches. My first big catch of the year weighed in at about 124lb wedding-pic.jpgit was my new wife Anne. On Saturday 5th January 2008 we got married on Town Lake a Lou Neff point.

Since getting married we have been busy renovating our house ready to sell it. Anyone interested in seeing our work I made a website for it Barton Hills Real Estate. We are also having a house built in Sunset Valley and the biggest news of all is I am going to be a Dad on or around 28th July 2008 to a little baby girl we are going to call Toni.

Anyway here is a brief of some of the carp fishing trips I need to write about:


  • 2 X 40lb+ Buffs in 1 day, including one at 47lb 15oz
  • A 43lb 6oz Buff a few days later
  • 3 x 30lb buffs in 1 day
  • A 28 and 29lb Grass Carp
  • A nearly 20lb Koi Carp
  • One baby girl weighing in at 5lb 8oz







Many other things to report as well. I upgraded my rods to Century NCS, I bought a Viper MK3 Bait Boat, 50" Landing Net (as some of these fish were starting to get hard to get into the 42")


As far as the website goes we have now included a forum which has increased page views quite considerably, we are now at over 20,000 per month. The website is holding steady on for the term carp fishing for which it is #1. Also, we now have over 200 members.



In 2 years we have now had over 2/3rds of a million unique visitors and as of 24th December 2008 353 Members. As I have not written much on this website this year I have added a "My Year in Picture's" Gallery which you can access here


Merry Christmas to everyone and a Happy New Year.
