Q:Recently my son asked me to fish under a local bridge on the Yellowstone. Just to throw something on the line for him, Small bobber, split shot to snap swivel. On the snap swivel small trout hook and a trout bead. And lastly a Mr. Twister grub tail. Within 15 seconds he caught a 5 lb. carp. Whats the silliest set up you have used and caught a fish?
Q:Any tips on catching chain pickerel? It's one of my favorites to catch and they are in the lake I live on the side of. I've heard all about the spoons, spinners, and minnows to use but I'm looking for anything that people have had success with that isn't so often recommended. In a lot of places it seems that they are relatively easy to catch and attack anything with pure aggression. However, in this lake they don't come so often or so easy but when they do they tend to be big and I've had my line broken and lures stolen from a couple hitting around 27inches and a good 4 pounds. I'm increasingly successful but always seeking out new information.
