I have been out a couple of times with pretty good early season success, including one 16 lber, but this was the first "hot" fish I picked up. 17 lbs, but a typical apex athlete fish...no backing runs, but a good battle with a beautiful carp.
The water is getting warmer, the fish are getting more active...you have to love spring! Most of the fishi have been catching have been in the 7-10lb range, but the big ones will come in shallow soon!
Winter is over! Anyone else out after carp?
