Lightbulb Better Check It Out

Carp are great fighters, caught some big ones on fly rod. Lake Michigan has some big ones around all of the river mouths, they are not fished, and are huge. Caught a close to 30 pounder once fishing for skaminia steelhead at the river mouth once. Thought it was a big iron head but turned out to be a carp.

Wouldn't mind going for them again, need to see what flies are useful though for them.

Anybody got any hot carp patterns, besides dough ball or corn imitations. Actually a small yarn egg fly may work, for them.
