    Took the fiancée out the other day and assisted her with landing her first carp. Caught it on a 9' med lite with 6lb test. This spot the carp are cookie cutters all around 10-12lbs. Needless to say she is hooked and loves it. We went out a couple times last year with little to no luck. We will be doing a lot more carp fishing this summer. Gotta get her used to fighting big fish before salmon and steelhead fishing!
