ermind behind the scandal, by Michael Wu, who worked as an adviser at the Los Angeles area branch of in

is that once you find them, you’ve got to stay on top of them,” Berry said.

Irwin said that every day the fish seem to prefer different temperatures and water depths. He is us

ing all the skills he has learned throughout the world to find better ways to fish for carp in Kentucky.
