Two minute mid-mn spring trip report. Day one rocked...think carp spotted, stalked, and hooked in shallow water. On video. Also think about ditching the 6 inch long bunny streamers for northern pike...a size 10 hares ear is much more effective. Oh, don't forget the burgers at an old college hangout...and chili.

Day two just ended. Much hunting and pecking, fish were caught. A good size buffalo pretended to be a tailing carp, complete with the munching of a carrot fly. I did a solo run after dropping J off at home for the evening and in one 10 ft section of water landed one nice carp, and 9 (NINE) quillback carp suckers. Think about that, then think about hot coffe, and white bean chili at Dunn Brothers.

More to come.

John -

Let me know if you ever make it down to Texas - we're catching carp in inches of clear water that think they're redfish!
