Caught a GRASS carp...finally. These things have broke me off soooooo many times. It is a canal with long grass and trees on both sides. The canal bottom is sticky mud, so the game plan is stand on a little ledge with roots and branches that keep tangling my line. The canal is full of grass and branches so I have lost some under those branches.

This one is not as nice as Bucktails but man what a fight.

Eighteen to Nineteen from the other evening. Just snapped a quick pic and got her back in the water but she was right around there, the length of the opening on my net is Twenty Two so makes it pretty easy to size them up...

I love Smallmouth...

Sorry Joni, thats still a Common carp. Grass carp are much longer and thinner with upturned mouth. Still a good fish!

The ones I fish are seriously picky I am still in awe of my only one so far it was massive and not nearly the biggest one in there Moldy chum even put it up in contention for this months slab of the month they are in my opinion the hardest freshwater fish to get on the fly common carp are simple in comparison.....in my opinion I know there are a few on this forum that say they have had them eat eat anything presented but the ones I fish break out a comb and a glass to inspect each presentation of course if they dont spook from the line first........
