Fishing – Ft. Lupton-Carp

Braggin Gallery

Check out this awesome carp! Jon’s story: My son and I were fishing the South Platte just North of Ft. Lupton, with no luck, when I spooked a pod of 5 to 6 carp from the river’s edge. We returned to the car to exchange our fishing poles for fishing gigs. After hunting the river’s edge for almost 20 minutes we finally spotted a large carp swimming upstream about 30 feet out from the bank. My throw hit the carp broadside. Before I could get him in, he got off the gig. Fortunately he swam toward the bank, where I threw and connected a 2nd time. The 2nd throw of the gig held and we were able to bring him up on the bank for photos.
