If you know me, you know that I loooove fishin’ for carp! So, it’s only fitting that I will be promoting the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s ‘carp carnival’ called Carp-O-Rama on my WOWT 6 News Outdoor Report this week. Carp-O-Rama will be held at Branched Oak Lake SRA‘s Lieber’s Point northwest of Lincoln, NE on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and you’re invited! Carp fishing is fun for all ages so bring the whole family! Catch more information about Carp-O-Rama and see video from previous years’ events by tuning in this Thursday evening LIVE during at 6 p.m. CST sportscast on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News. Like the last several years at this time, weather permitting, WOWT 6 Sports Director Ross Jernstrom and I are planning on broadcasting LIVE near the College World Series Fan Fest Area at TD Ameritrade Park in downtown Omaha. If you see us, come over and check out the “live shot!”
Carp-O-Rama on Outdoor Report
Remember, if you are unable to view the live broadcast of the outdoor report, video replays of it can be seen after the initial cast here. The report can also be accessed on Digital Channel 6.2 and Cox Cable Channel 120. In addition, the station runs The Weekly Outdoor Report on Saturdays later in its hour-long 8 a.m. CST newscast. The WOWT 6 Sports Machine crew and I thank you for watching! Oh, and here’s my favorite dough ball recipe to catch carp!
Wags Strawberry Jello Dough Ball Supreme
1 cup water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
a dash of garlic salt
Bring these ingredients to a boil, then mix together and add:
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
1/2 package strawberry jello
*Cook for a few minutes until mixture thickens. Pour onto waxed paper, flatten, and cut into squares. When cool enough to handle, roll into balls. Keep refrigerated for longest life. Can be frozen and thawed before use, but is best when used fresh. Happy carp fishing!
