Fish: Grass Carp

Grassie surprise!

My friend Hayden and I headed out to go fish a local pond the other night. We spent the first part of the day chucking streamers along the banks looking for a bass, but we couldn't find any. I switched up to a black #6 dumbbell eyed bugger, and after about 5 mins of throwing it, something hit it on the drop. i set the hook thinking it was a big bass, but after a good strong fight, I swung up something un expected. It was my first grassie! It wasn't big, but boy was it fun! After a few pics, we sent it back on its way. We both ended up with some nice crappies too, but the grassie was the highlight of the night for sure!
Tight lines,
Rob

Nice man. That's one of my species I haven't caught yet. I thought them grassers only ate vegetation.
