I started off catching a few small catfish, but shortly there after, I hooked into something very different. I immediately knew and felt the difference. Using light tackle, the high pitched music of my spinning reel drag instantly brought a smile to my face. And then the bright fire of it's beautiful tail flashing under water, made my eyes happy.
In the short amount of time I had available, I ended up with a 23" and a 25" carp. I also had one hookup to a much bigger one that really pulled like a freight train, but a minute into it, it came off. I also saw a couple roll that had to have been pushing three feet.
I've never actually caught a bonefish before, but from the stories I hear, I imagine they're really quite amazing. And I'm sure the diehard bonefish fishermen will say there really is no comparison, but from someone who's never caught one, and probably won't have a chance to any time soon, my sweetwater bone will have to do.
