Lowell, Mass

I was in Lowell, Massachusetts fishing with my grandfather and caught a 15 lb Carp and I was young at the time and did not know the first thing about fishing. Well long story short, the carp was putting up a fight and my grandfather watched as I struggled to reel it in and the two men out on a fishing boat were also watching and asked if my grandfather was going to help me, his response was "Nope, gonna let her reel it in herself." Well after a struggle for 10 minutes with it, it pulled me into the water, so I reeled it in as close as I could, then jumped in the water and grabbed the line and brought the fish in by hand. I never saw my grandfather laugh as hard a he did that day!

Hi Jan,
We're on separate sides of the country. Which is cool. Arizona Desert lakes is a lot differant than lakes back east. I'm from Northern Indiana originally. Az Lakes are very rocky and don't have the same kind of weeds or brush. It took me 11 months to catch my first fish in Arizona. I haven't been a member to long on this site. Still learning all that it has to offer.
