Re: Finally hooked my first carp!!!!
I hooked a couple carp so far, but haven't TRULY landed one yet. Got two of them head up right by shore there's a steep embankment and they really got to be rubbing the rock in order to grab them. Line snapped when my buddy grabbed it to grab the fish.
The ones around me get to about 25lbs in this small-ish reservoir. As soon as you set the hook, they drag about 100-150ft of line and then dog it out in the center of the reservoir.
