Catching 10 pounders every spring

    I caught another 10-pound fish this week, on ultra-lite gear with four-pound line. I do it about every year, while fishing for white bass on a small tributary where they like to come to spawn. Caught one last year and another the year before. I wish I could say they were 10-pound walleye, but they weren’t. They were carp! Every carp I catch during the spring is hooked in the body somehow. Wish I could hook a 10-pound walleye just once. It is a fact though that gold and silver is more rare than sandstone and limestone. And almost everything you want to catch is rarer than a carp!
