    Yep...it's on! Who will be crowned 'Carp King' for the 2019/20 season? Me thinks it will be me! Basically to claim victory, the person who catches the largest (read longest, irrespective of weight) carp shall have the title of 'Carp King'! The comp starts 1st September, as in tomorrow...ends June 30th 2020. That way CC can't count his monster he got the other day!:cool: Place a pic of your largest carp on here (and do a report elsewhere) and then we go from there. Upgrade pics on this thread. Bottom line is the next decent carp caught will be the first entry! Sorry about this comp being only for the 2 of us but it is now personal!!!:mad: Besides, there is no prize, just pride so you won't miss out on anything!
    cheers

    Top of 20 forecast for Tuesday here in Shepp!:)

    I was going to have tomorrow off (fishing) but now you give me no choice.

    2019/20 is the year I extract revenge on you and your feline friends.

    :mad:

    This could be the beginning of something big - maybe some side bets or a tipping competition?

    ...not sure who to back, studying the form of both contenders.

    If anyone else wants to chase the title of carp king...go for it! Just post a pic of the fish on a brag mat or alongside a ruler. Add a few details if you want about methods. Myself and CC normally do it on our other threads. I will be happy when I beat CC!!:cool: Not worried about losing to anyone else...reality is, none of you can beat me anyway!
    cheers

    Now that is a challenge if I ever heard one.

    Are there any rules regarding locality? The last time I had a go at carp was just out of Renmark and managed 156 in a week. Even the local birdlife were impressed.

    There is a fair pissabolity that I could be back at the same spot later in the year and that being the case then it's game on.

    ONE DAY IS ALL IT TOOK!

    The first day of spring has sprung,
    T'was caught down the creek,
    by a Carp angling champion.
    Cornacarpio is the name,
    Rod Bender casting all blame,
    But the 2019/20 'Carp King' has already been named!

    CC
    2019/20 CARP KING!
    (until proven otherwise)

    No rules regarding locality...not many rules at all actually! Fish must be caught by legal methods ie. no depth charges, rifles etc!​

    Pffftttt! Was thinking about my grand plan this morning and I came up with the following. CC is a pussy when it comes to cold weather sooooo......I wait til June 1st next year to see what he dished up, then I go out and get a bigger one! Simple!

    I know some members can not post pics so if someone does catch a bigger carp that will take the lead at any time, take a pic and pm me. I can send my email address to them and get it that way and then I will download it for them.
    cheers
    Team Bender
    Will have an early night tonight cos reading CC's full report made me tired!

    I read this with fear and trepidation.
    I tremble as I feel a wicked war coming on.
    Old Kev once convinced me this was a happy site.
    No longer; mad violence is in the air.
    Vicious words are being thrown around.
    I fear serious injuries must come next;
    things like spearing enemies with a black queen
    or garroting with a heavy mono trace.
    Could there be anything more dangerous than a fishing comp?

    WHERE OH WHERE MIGHT IT END????

    Now there's an intelligent thought.
    Good one Wally but the waters may still run red for months to come.
    Seeing the Murray flowing in brilliant red would be most decorative
    but TBX could be extremely short on members when the dust settles.

    Whatever! Let me know when you have finished! Then I will do something!

    From your other post, you have called it 73cm's? I can't see it that well on my phone.
    Cheers
