fshappadmin | Posted on

fshappadmin | Posted on

“Grass carp wars” that’s what it was called in the 1970’s when the controversial proposal of importing fertile grass carp from Asia to control non-native aquatic plants came to Florida. Maybe calling it war was overkill, but the two sides certainly were polarized. The thing was–both sides had good intents and cause for concern.

How many times has a guide, pro, or fishing buddy advised we think “outside the box” when choosing a bait? Seriously, if we had a dollar for every instance, we’d probably be boat shopping.

Still, there’s a lot of truth to the over-used adage. Going rogue, novel or off-the-wall is often just the thing to fool finicky fish. And it’s not just about choosing the overlooked lures. Sometimes it’s about…
