    Bike, skate, scooter or vans? You sound motivated, what the heck is the absence of a ride for an obstacle for a motivated young angler? Nothing, that's what. Get on some carp action then and give us a report. Maybe you get successful and someone will pass by the crib and let you roll with them.

    if you could get a ride to kirkland, i would be willing to do a green lake carp trip before it gets too cold.

    We have talked about "carping" for years, just never did it. I once watched my cousin battle one on a fly rod insisting all the while it was a large brown. Well, it was large and it was brown.
