Went 1/1 today. Started at Oak Creek Power Plant and ended up in McKinley / Summerfest ponds. Tried everything from trolling to casting, jigging, and live bait. Live bait took the cake. Cant wait for that Ice to be back in the marina / Summerfest ponds. Tight lines!

Great day of fishing, went 4/6. Caught all fish on slip bobber set-up's with 15# fluorocarbon, size 1 Gamakatsu Octopus hooks, and cured skein. Kings are still hanging around. Tight lines!
I've been seeing carp and drum in the lagoon and harbor recently, I've never targeted them but they look big enough to be a fun fight. Any tips on catching them? I've had the drum chase a chatterbait and a crankbait, but never bit at them. PM me if you'd prefer.
