    Caught a very nice and beautiful channel that went over 5 lb. Get this!!!! Caught her on Carne Asada. I brought out some links and some carne Asada that had calantro, onions and lemon marinating in the bag. Ate em with warmed up corn tortillas. Well, I told the boys, I am gonna put a hunk of that asada on the hook. 10 min later, a 5+ lb. Channel.

    Rob ssshhhhh that's my secret go to bait. Get the worst part of the meat and let it soak in viniger for about a day or so. That will make it really tough and you'll be able to fish the whole night with just that piece. I've gotten my biggest cat off carne asada. It's a proven winner.

    Sounds like you had a nice little feast out there.

    It's thin strips of meat like skirt steak marinated in a spicy sauce of herbs, peppers, etc. Is usually cooked over direct heat on a bbq. Our walmart sells it here, course I'm not far from the border.

    Really? As many times that I have had carne asada bbqed at a lake and also river. I find it hard to put on a hook though. I 'll rather have it in some tortillas with guacamole sauce and cheese and salsa.

    I am with you on this one.

    Carne asada is what they call the meat you find in the steak tacos in the midwest. Some areas also call it Arrachera.
