The second outing of the day trying to get my girlfriend Sara onto her first 10lb Carp. I didn't Feel Like I was going to catch a lot of fish maybe confidence was still shot from that one last outing (disapointment). But Put Dry Ice in the Cooler, Threw in some Gatorade and Beef Jerkey and on our way. We arrived and Fishing was really Slow We Arrived at 5:00p.m. And fished untill 7:00p.m. I did manage a carp but a small one... And Sara is again the story of the day Catching her First Channel Catfish !! Shes not doing bad this year with a lot of First Species. She enjoyed the fight and fish. I did have a nice time out with Sara and this outing was also a good expiermental outing, I have a lot of good things I Seen today to build on For the Next Carp outing.
