Papago Park

Me an my friend landon went to Papago Park to go fishing. We left my house at 4:30am and got to the lake at 5. Since the gates were closed we had to walk a mile with all of our gear down to the lake. When we finally get we set up our gear and start fishing. I starte walking around the lake to look for spots fish would want to be hiding. I stopped at a part that was completely covered with moss. I knew fish would be down there. The moss started clearing up since new water was being put in the lake pushing the moss father out. As the moss cleared I saw this huge Carp! It was white and orange. Biggest Carp I have ever seen. Too bad I didnt catch it. After 4 hours of not catching anything e moved down to the middle lake.

Landon I were just looking around for Bluegill and other sunfish since they are right on the shoreline. Landon puts his line in the water and within 5 seconds he pops out a bluegill. He threw his line in a again and within 5 seconds popped out another bluegill. I was like man what are u useing for bait!? He was just using a small bit of live worms. We both started throwing in the worms far being the fish and reeling it in and a fish would bite it just about everytime. It was o awesome! WE caught about 20 fish in like 2 hours! (the fish started getting a little smarter as we went)

Here are some picture of like half of the fish we caught.

The biggest bluegill ive ever seen/caught

This is the spot we fished at. Where ever we threw our line we were bound to catch a fish.

Great Job!!

Okay, Just curious....What's up
with the fishing? Are you trying to get a merit badge or something?

Or is it just for fun?
