Went to the downtown elgin dam to meet up with a buddy to get our lines wet for MAYBE a catfish, but mostly walleye fishing. I got there before it was light out to get the best possible chance i could to catch. Fished from 6:30 am to about 10:30 am. Only thing all day was right when i got to the water, i set up a line with chicken liver on it and walk away... all the sudden my drag is screetching. I set it low so it would do just that as i was walkin around and getting more set up. So i run over and start reeling it in and all it is is a big carp. Other than just the fun fight with him i got skunked.
