BIG FISH 2-11

Hit the ponds today with a P&G to no avail.  Then went back to the house and rigged up a silver buddy.  Pounded Pavilion with it for over an hour only to get one BG.  Decided to make one last cast.  About 3 jigs back and WHAM smile .  Knew I had snagged one of those grass carp.  Only had 6-lb test sad .  After about 40 minutes of trying to get line back in......it was tired.  A lady walked up just as I was getting it out of the water and she was kind enough to take a pic on my phone.  Could hardly pick it up and estimated it to be 40-45 lbs......pic does not show how thick the shoulders were....about 7-8"  Returned to the water to be snagged again big_smile .  Oh yeah......that is my blood from the sharp gill plate sad

Re: BIG FISH 2-11

That must have been an exhilarating fight on 6lb test! Great job on landing that beast!


Together we'll fight the long defeat.

Re: BIG FISH 2-11

That's awesome! I didn't know they had a sharp gill plate, that's good info to know. Any other sharp parts on them?
