Fish: Grass Carp

PB, new species for me and an MA! what a great day

Post By: Toadfish      Posted: 6/13/2016 7:31:25 PM     Points: 3831    
A good friend of mine took me on a fishing adventure today and we made 2 stops. First stop was productive, but nothing special for me... 2nd stop however got me into a MONSTER!!!

at just over 23 lbs. this is the heaviest fish I have ever landed. I don't have an exact measurement yet but it is also the longest fish I have ever landed. Also my first ever grass carp and an MA at an estimated 35-38' (will have a confirmed length tomorrow)

Here are some pictures of the net the fish was compared to, I didn't think it was that big! I'm so excited!!

Also have to give a HUGE shoutout to Bron, and Captain Doughball for taking me out and helping me with this BEAST as well as being great guys and good friends!! Thanks guys, I truly appreciate everything and can't wait to fish together again soon!!

Way to go dude! Truly a beast that one. Curtis and the Captain certainly put you on a good one.

This was our best trip this year and I cant tell you how happy we are you caught that beast! Blake got his first catfish today too and it was 6#. It is really something when the guy who caught the fidh and the guy who netted it are winded and dont care to get a line out again. Just before it went down I told Nate " I feel it coming...all Hells gonna break loose"...and it really did. What a day!
