    Anybody ever do any "Pikeminnow" fishing for the bounty (we used to call 'em squawfish)? It sounds like a fun way to earn a few extra bucks. Just wondering how successful the average angler may be on any given day.

    used to catch them all day long along with carp, I used jalapeno chease and grean/yellow rooster tails. Wasnt doing it for a bounty just for fun, wish I had I'd be rich. Nothing like fighting a 10lb carp or 2-3lb squaw with a trout rod.

    I hear ya....years ago my brothers and I used to go carp fishing on the Columbia slew using the smallest poles we had. Spend all day on the banks catchin those monsters just for fun.
    I've heard of some guys earning a pretty decent "wage" with the pikeminnow bounty.
