Big shad and big sunfish work if there are big fish around. Hook and line the carp if you are near a location that has them. Boiled deer corn for bait, hair rig with #8-#4 j hook , chum with range cubes and boiled deer corn.

Frozen talapia from the grocery store has worked for me in a pinch


When you catch a fish you feel the door to happiness open

Actually that grass carp is supposed to be some fine eating.


From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
