    I just got back from the CJ and how great it was. Woke up at 5am with my dad and we went around looking to spots to fish. finally we said screw it and we went to the easy catch marina banks (ones that looks like a beach) Anyways i caught a crappie or two in my cast net and i went up to a guy who had 2 kids by the snackbar and asked if they had caught anything, they didnt. so i had him take his kids away and i put them on there hooks. They came back and were so excited that they got a fish. But the best part was, they both got in the paper from a reporter who was there. After that i went back to the beach I caught 1 3# cat and 2 carp that were 14.8 and 17.6. My dad caught a 15.6 carp and 2 cats both at 5#. Best trip to Cj ive had so far.:big_smile:
    I was using minnows and glo-worms by the way.

    Congrats on the catches you and your dad had. Good luck next time you get out. Enjoy the time you have with your father. Those are great memories that you will have forever.
