Arrived at 10:00am no bite for the carp so quickly adjusted and moved, Angel and I moved to a usually nice producing bridge when all else fails. We moved there and caught some then moved a couple more times until we decided to both just throw out for carp and Chill. While "chilling" Angel had two carp which managed to both escape. I had a couple hits from carp but nothing to show. So I decided "what the Hell" Got the Berkley (My Jigging Rod) and jigged. While Jigging a Metropolitan Officer in an SUV pulled up behind us while Angel was well umm... Relieving himself, So we both got scared... But it was cool he didn't see anything. He asked for my license and checked my state I.D. And stressed to angel to get a state I.D. then the officer was back to his truck. Then I went back to my book bag to put my wallet back in my book bag I noticed a Jig of mine fell out. So what the hay. Tied it on and threw it out. Second Cast She hit and boy was she a Beauty! The Metropolitan Officer still there was stunned and congratulated me on my success. Boy was today a great one.
