    Went to Cachuma early Sunday.
    Forgot my liscence but the good thing about the new system is for 9 bucks, you can get a reprint which is good all year-like having 2 liscences!!
    Specifically going for Carp. I brought dough, corn
    chunk of mack, and some anchovies from last night pizza.
    They were schooling and boiling on the surface as I cut across towards a point
    dropped the bait-trebble hook under a bobber- 3 or 4 times in the exact right places. Adrenilin was pumping, but that was about it. Worked the private dock near
    Mohawk-nada. Then up a cove, had two, side by side,big bass follow my bait
    twice before my eyes, but couldn't get em to bite. Anchored up and tried for
    awhile-zip.
    Then a couple points later, sun comes out and the water is really clear-there they are-more bass- and carp and blue gill-.... the mother load...
    1st off, landed 1 what I think is a small mouth. Solid 12 incher on a drop shotted
    nightcrawler. 1/2 hour later and no more bass biting but I know they are there.
    Wind picking up, so are the blue gill, switch to a small jig head and start reeling them in.About 15 landed 10 lost. Kept 3 bigger ones for a live well pic and released.
    In the mean time I saw MANY carp in that flat.
    I guess if I want a carp, I'm gonna have to get a bow. So I guess I'm lookin for
    a bow setup, but I'm on a budget, I'm sure you all know what I mean
    Good thing I got that liscence copy-got checked by DFG when I came in.
    He was on the water in a kayak, followed my in and checked me out, in fact, he took the pic of me....
    Cachuma again next Sat AM. for sure in stone...see ya' then...have a good week...

    Great day Paul. That's a Large MB. Google hair rig too I think that makes a big difference for hook ups on carp. I've only fished carp a few times but the last time was with the hair rig and it seemed to work better.

    I've always done my best just using hotdog buns for carp bait. Just chum a little bit then flyline a some bun on a treble. I use a bubble sinker half full of water if I gotta launch it out a ways.

    You better get the yak out in the big lake soon things should start to happen inshore.

    Nice, I always wanted to go after the carp at Perris with an atlatl instead of a bow. The caribou hunting in So Cal is terrible so what else you gonna do?
