Chub as big as the one JP has there are not common and they are hard to catch. Seriously, a 5 pound Chub the way the show made it sound was like the Holy Grail of Chub fishing.
Thanks for posting that.
I should also say that in that same show, they caught Dace, which when small are almost identical to Chub. There is a way using one of the fins. One curves in, the other out.
You're too kind Dan
dace are even more exciting to fish than chub...they're smaller but very selective ...haven't caught or seen one for a while
still too cold...will post some pics after dinner you'll see the differences
