I hope your steelhead season resumes soon, one should not be so desparate as to revert to carp, but I can tell you I did catch a twenty some pounder while fishing for steelhead in Lake Michigan and they will get your arms in shape for the steelies for sure. They are a strong fish, just don't look at them to long.

Perception is a funny thing. Hell I don't even want to touch a carp. They may fight like hell and peel off backing like no other game fish but because of my perception, the product of years of stereotyping I want nothing to do with them. I know several lakes full of 15-30 lb carp that are always visible and close to the surface i am sure if they were any other fish it would be a world class fishery but in the end to me they are just carp. I guess thats my loss but oh well *L*

but hey if anyone ever wants to take the float tubes out and go after smallmouth from 8-15 inches i am all game for that..
Only steelhead matter!
