Indeed, this was a carp-filled year for me. I visited a number of destination hotspots with the unique bent of chasing trash fish. For example, I went to Idaho's Snake River to fish for carp instead of trout. I went to San Diego to hang out with my buddy Conway Bowman, but we didn't chase mako sharks. We went carp fishing. I went to Michigan and caught carp... but I also caught pike, panfish and trout because you can always fish for just about anything in Michigan.
