Carp in the shallows

I fished Guntersville yesterday (Monday from 6-7:30) put in at Beach Creek. I was just tooling around casting a beetle spin trying to catch a few bream. I had a swirl the size of the output of my outboard about 10 feet from my boat. This happened a couple of times in the area. Anyone interested in tackling a who knows how big carp, I think that would be the place. Many fish moving in the shallow (3 foot or so) water. I caught a 2 pound channel cat on a wimpy rod, 4lb test, and a beetle spin. Bream fishing was nothing to brag about. Still fun, one jerk on the end of a pole waiting for another.
