I fish for Trout and all that implies. We have a couple of shallow lakes here in Utah that house BASS (white, Wipers, Small Mouth and LArge Mouth) plus Carp, and Cat Okay I have the LM and SM down and can catch them on a fly, infact I have caught Cat on a fly, but I have never been able to go for Carp. Well today we went to Utah Lake (very shallow lake, we were in 2' to 5' of water) Being new to this lake, plus species, I was thinking SKUNK. I hooked into one of the toilet plunger lipped monsters and I am hooked! Reel screaming and a bend in the rod that was a rush! Ended up with three total plus a white bass. Had to rename my new McFarland Glass rod that the ol' man built me for Christmas the ALCARPONE!
