Heading to Vegas for a week. People keep telling me to target the stripers in Lake Mead but after visiting the marina a few years ago and seeing how the stripers took on the characteristics of a friggin goldfish I have no motivation to do so. My 3 boys were throwing popcorn and chips off the dock
while schooling stripers and CARP(aka cockroach with fins) would join in on a feeding frenzy. My eldest said to me "Dad you don't need all those lures just use buttered popcorn..." This was after leaving Bass Pro Shops where I spent a fortune on some AC Plugs... :dismay:

Use an yellow sponge cut into chunks and "fly line" to the carp with light gear. They fight real well.

Interesting to note; That carp are considered a highly valued sport/culinary fish in Europe......Mark
Fish have NO HANDS!!!....if you're getting bit, it's in the fish's month....SET THE HOOK!!!!!

Some Men are born Great, other men become Great, some men have Greatness thrust upon them, many are desperately seeking a 4th way

Most would follow an established path, rather than blazing one's own trail
