Re: I have a confession...
Suckers and carp on nymphs have brightened some days for sure. Carp on dry flies too, along with some big chubs but the biggest chubs and some channel cats came on streamers. So ............. No worries here buddy, no such thing as a bad fish especially when it's a huge one like in your photo! If there is a bad fish it might be the dead king carcase I caught swinging streamers at the mouth of a big creek while fishing silvers in the fall last year. I've caught some dead fish here when fishing along the bottom so they could be considered not picture worthy.
