Caught this Carp while fishing for Bluegill on the Guadalupe River. I was jigging a small piece of worm next to a dock when it hit. The fight was on the fish pealed drag for about 30 seconds. After a GREAT five minute fight the fish was landed. Approx weight was 5 Lbs. Fish was released! That was one SUPER fight. boxing

Thanks "Curt0407" for the reply! cheers I have caught others that were smaller and the fight was also fantastic. boxing The biggest one I had fought but it got off at the end was a good 12 to 15 pound fish. I was fishing a creek. It got off when I tried to take it to shallower water to land it. bang



Side Note: Fought that fish for about 30 minutes. nuts
