Thanks to some advice on this website, me and my buddy headed to herman park in the morning and caught this monster on bread, fished low on the bottom. We have seen them tailing for years and one FINALLY bit!




Edit - Here's the video for it, just uploaded it -

??Someone jump in and identify this fish, not the old German carp I don't think. Too long and slender and the mouth is not right? Maybe a Buffalo? bg

grass carp


The only thing is this fish seems to have a hump, that most grass carp don't. Is that through cross breeding maybe?
