How's it going everyone. I went out to Bartlett Monday. We caught a couple gills and about 15 carp 12 - 18 inches. I was fishing off shore in SB cove and had no bites. I'm taking the boat out Mon and Tues so wish me luck. Andy, , if I remember right you said you didn't have any luck in the river. Is that right? River or main lake?? I'm kinda up ion the air as to where they might be this early. About that braided line. I've got a few questions. I went to sportsmans today and the guy laughs at me when I tell him I've lost fish in the rocks at Bartlett with my braided line and was thinking about spooling up some mono on one of my reels. Last year in one night at Bartlett i lost 3 big fish in the rocks on 85 lb braided. Does mono hold up in the rocks better than braided? If so, what test should I use?? Thanks for the help fellas.
