Nice fish, sounds like you had a pretty productive couple hours for sure!

Nice catch. On a side note, were there any other people around? Last time I was at the park ( last year) I had all of my hub caps stollen. I was only away from my car for a little over an hour and never saw a soul. It's left a sour taste in my mouth for that area ever since.

The fatheads must have been the key, I threw multiple jigs with different colored grubs with no luck. Also tried in-line spinner, spinnerbait, and a crank with no luck. I did snag a carp and lost a crank. Even though I got the skunk, it felt good to be out. I'm bringing fatheads next time out.

Gulp minnows are a nice substitute for live bait btw. I always have some of those on me and they do quite well if not better than live sometimes.

Fished live bait the other day as well. No action there but we did not have the time to commit to live bait- minnows. The hits were all short, but a great day none the less.
