What to do in Phoenix? If you’re asking yourself this, chances are you are living in phoenix or plan on visiting here. Despite Phoenix being a big desert, we have a decent amount of water in town and on the out skirts. With these hot temps and mild winters, fish get big! Especially the tough fish that aren’t as temperamental with weather. Like Carp, these fish will eat year round here in Phoenix. That means we can fish them year round! So, if you’re in town and want to see some of Arizona’s most beautiful scenery, book a trip with Lo Water Guide Service. Most of our trips are guided on the Tonto National Forest, which encompassing over 2.8 million acres and some of the most stunning and breathtaking landscapes the West has to offer.

What is flats style carp fishing? If you have been to a coastal destination to fish, you have probably seen a skiff set up for flats fishing. These boats usually float in very shallow water where the fish are barely in the water and heavily feeding. The boats have a large poling platform on the transom for spotting fish and for poling from. Ive been on a bonefish trip in Hawaii and got to experience these boats first hand. I quickly realized that this may be the most epic way to catch carp. so once I got back home, the planning began and the boat was built. I quickly started to rush to any lake nearby and immediately headed to the furthest coves i could. Once i started spotting fish i had to change my urban tactics, as now im on a boat and these fish eat “lake” type foods. sneaking on these fish takes persistence and a tad of luck but with a 20′ push pole, I began to get within feet of these fish and started catching them! It became obsessive for me, I was basically chasing bones and redfish in my backyard.
