Cool catch! Those grassies pretty tough to sneak up on in kayak?

Yes, sneaking up close to them in a kayak is the toughest part. Any little splash with the paddle or bump against the hull and they are off like a torpedo. But once you are in close, sight casting to surface feeding grass carp is way cool. I catch them mostly on a green foam hopper/fly rod when they are feeding on cottonwood seeds, oak pods, or leaves that have fallen on the surface.
