We couldn't decide what lake to hit yesterday so we decided to hit all 3 of the venues in discussion. My son kept insisting that his lake--Hyland Ponds--was the best choice though and he ended up being right. First was Sloans and we managed 1 bite in 2 hours. Then we hit Birdland and we didn't even get a bite there. At Hyland I had a 3# carp before we could even get all our lines in the water. Blake hooked 3 but only landed 1 because the carp kept hitting the worms on his lightweight spincast instead of the carp bait on his heavy duty rod. Caught a bluegill too. Was nice meeting up with Goosehunter at Hyland too!

The carp may look dumb, but they are pretty smart and they are very weary - if they can feel the line, or get a little poke from your hook, the spit out your bait in the hurry. Guess they liked those worms, though... :) Nice pics.
