Tonight no carp were caught but Dan got a pleasant surprise in the form of a far more juvenile channel catfish than he expected to be in this lake. Poachers routinely come and take fish in the night. I think I scared one off with my flashlight.:-)
Carping and catting is fun. Messy but fun. We spent about four and a half hours listening for the subtle difference in tones of bell as made by the breeze, the bluegills, or in the one instance that night a fish. It'll take a weekend, a 5-Hour Energy, and a lawn chair for me but I'd do it again. I like all types of fishing I've tried so far and catching cats sounds like a nice way to spend a summer night to me.
