Hit the Arapahoe Bend Ponds today with my ultralight gear and ultralight jerkbaits.
Caught around 30 or so 6 inch crappie, and 5 small bass.
Threw into the shallows, then BOOM got a hit and immediately knew it was a carp.
He started to rip line and take those long runs soon after. I was slightly concerned about the 4lb test holding up, But my trusty little Stradic ci4+ 1000 was taking the long runs like a CHAMP. Was about a 5 minute fight, banked him, snapped a shot and released him.
This fish could have been an extra 10 pounds on him and I am confident that Drag system would still handle the fish with ease. I knew the drag system was good on these Stradics, but just didn't know how well until I hooked into this fish today. Can't wait to get a 2500!
