1) it was hooked in the lip on a green jig
2) I netted it
3) I released it
The jig was from line that was broke off in a tree!
For more context.. that green jig 10 days ago was at least one or two feet out of the water, I saw it Sunday before last. The lake level has risen enough that jig got into the water and the carp obviously took it! We found it because The Boss heard splashing as we were launching the toon.
soooooo is it a catch? yay or nay?
The last pic is the fish kissing me on the cheek and profusely thanking me for freeing it! lol
