    Only cat my fishing partner and I got over the weekend was a 20# blue. There just not turned on yet. I'm hoping they start feeding big time in the next week or so.

    My new rig is running great, the motor is broken-in now, I just have to catch some fish to put in my live well. Question for you Cuz do those Asian Carps jump at night, if you are night fishing.

    I'm assuming that you were hit by one of our famous flying carp. Gotta watch them critters. I've been on the Lamine several times and never seen them jumping there. Come to think of it though - I have never been on the Lamine at night! Stay safe out there!

    Everyone is correct Devlyn. They can, and do, jump at night. However, they dont quite jump as much as they do in day time when startled. I think the primary reason is at night time they are much more scattered as they are feeding. I often see them on top of the water at night filter feeding against the current. Daytime, i find them deep in the holes. Good Luck filling up that livewell.
