Some weekends the time on the water is so enjoyable that you never want the weekend to end.  Saturday started extremely cold.  The weather was beautiful otherwise.  Although, i was only able to catch a giant carp that day, I was lucky to be able to spend the afternoon on the water with a good friend from Florida.  Fun was had by all.

Sunday was a different story.  My father and i set out for an afternoon of fishing at Lake Arthur and did we have some fun.  Each of us ended up catching a largemouth bass, but only 1 keeper.  Dad mananged to hook into a monster carp that was over 14 pounds!!!  I managed to hook up with a hybrid striper that was 24″ and a walleye that was over 20″.

  1. That is a great day on the water right there. You guys got a little of everything. That’s the best part about fishing, you get that tug and you don’t know what it’s going to be till you get it to the boat.
