Coolest looking carp

So a few days ago, I went bait fishing for carp with one of my buddies! Was actually a nice change of pace. Normally I fly fish for carp, but that is a very active game. It is kind of nice to just sit and chat with a friend while waiting for a bite. Ended up catching a couple carp, but this one was the coolest! Actually one of the coolest looking carp Iíve ever seen. I know many of yíall donít like carp, but for those who do, check this guy out!!

Bron I find your comment hilarious. It feels like 90% of the carp that I catch do not want to cooperate for the camera and I usually get a tail slap in the face followed by a fish flop in the water and really wet clothes from them splashing me as they swim away when I try to take a picture like that. This one was very cooperative.

If you cover their eyes with your hand while you handle them it calms them down.

I call them fun fish. While I don't keep them, I enjoy the battle.
They always show up for the fight. Nice job.
