My sister and I took dad out fishing for fathers day 2007. We went and fished the Illinois River from under the grain elevator in Chillicothe, IL. It's a spot I've had good luck catching catfish in the past. While they were fishing for catfish, I tied on a rubber worm to see if any bass were around. I ended up catching a 5lb carp on the second cast. It was my first carp. After that it was a slow day, the only other action we had was a catfish that got off when my sister reeled it to shore.
My sis probably would have tried to make a better face if she knew I would post this on the Internet.
