I had to have our IT guy show me how to capture still frames from video on my phone--but here is the carp that got me 2nd place in the tourney Sunday.

If you are ever going thru Omaha-you should check out Joe Tess place. It sounded gross but was delicious. They chop carp into big chunks and fry at super hot temps with a killer batter. The bones liquefy so you can eat the entire chunks. Fantastic stuff.

Hey Bron,
So for the tournament, you only measure length not weight?
 Reply by: bron      Posted: 8/19/2018 4:21:00 PM     Points: 33512    
Yes, length. Total inches of carp landed.

Bron, I have some large carp ripe for the taking in Estes. Get back up here. Sight fishing for them would be a cake. Anyway, congrats and nice fish.
