Somehow, and luckily, I managed to begin a dialogue with a very nice carp and this was the first lake carp I've ever caught.
Not to be outdone, Charlie returns the very next day and captures his first ever lake carp and misses a couple of more.
Charlie took his carp on his favored San Juan worm, a feat he has pulled off many times in the past couple of years.
We are hopeful the carp will keep returning to the more shallow sea-lane to feed. This will be our only chance of continuing our conversations with these creatures. The main lake is too big and way too deep for us to have any chance of meeting these fish at all.
Hopefully, our conversations will continue.
