    The wife & I got to a spot on the GMR I've looked at for a couple years in hopes of doing some cattin. We ended up getting :S . Had lot sof action, but I'm pretty sure it was all turtles. These turtles were hitting much harder than what I've experienced in the past, but still were not enough to get theirself hooked on the circle hook. Frozen Cut Sahd & live Goldfish were the bait. Has anyone had much success hooking turles on circle hooks? We got to the spot around 6PM and got back to the Jeep at around 8PM. It was a nice couple hours w/ the wife (the 3 kids were @ my dads!) I walked around & saw probally 30 carp close to the banks in the shallow water. Are they still spawning?

    It is actually an area where the GMR splits. There are lots of log jams & the such, but the area where the jams are is only 10 foot or so wide.
