Howdy fellow Arizona cat fish nuts, ~ On my last three visits to Bartlet, I have fished strickly near the dam/marina area.. I have had good luck, avoiding getting skunked every time. No Flatheads over 20# though. The Blue cats seem to be hitting more and more at night. Some are even hitting the blue gill offerings.. Also, the population of small bite sized carps, (yummy) seem to be increasing. Last Sunday morning; my wife, daughter and me pulled out around 50 of them in the course of about 3 hours.. (my dog ate what was left of our corn).. ~ Anyone have expirience with using carp for bait? What style hook, size, location of hook penetration, etc... I have been using them lately, hooking them in the same fashion I would for the blue gills (behind dorsal).. ~ Any body fishing up river, what is the good word up there?
