i am not trying to waste a bunch of gas for an afternoon trip, so me and the girls went to a community fishing lake today. caugh 8 channels in 3 hours on cut carp. this carp was way past it's prime, it was not marinaded and had been sitting in a ziploc for dang near a year. they hit it, but reluctantly. we used red size 2 circles on a slip rig. the girls were swinging the fish basket throwing it in the water when the older one connected her shin with a pectoral spine. that's the first time she's ever been finned for real, poor thing. maybe it will make the fish taste better! i found a bunch of big carp feeding in the rocks with their tails sticking out of the water. i didn't have anything to catch em on. i will go back tomorrow and hopefully sack up a bunch of cut bait. momma didn't feel like fishing but she came along for moral support, even though she's having light contractions..... here's a couple pics.
