I took 3 Russians out fishing today and had a pretty slow day with only 2 fish but did get a nice 36 inch carp towards the end of the day. First fish was 2 feet long and seond was 3 feet long!

Very nice.I've found those 36"+ to be great fighters.Generally even lake and state records are only 3-5" longer.

The 36 inch Carp I caught yesterday did not fight much at all. It pretty much just let me reel it in. I could tell it was the big fish of the day because of the bend in my rod. It seems like the smaller ones like the other one I caught yesterday that are really good fighters. This is 3rd 36 inch carp I have caught out of Northlakes and the lightest of all 3. Heaviest 3 footer so far was 19 lbs.

Probably a lack of food in those ponds, most 36 inchers up here are in the upper 20's. with some in the 30 lbs range prespawn.

That's awful skinny for a 3 foot fish. Love the way the tail looks though with that bright yellow.

Definitely the lightest 3 footer I have caught. I also agree that one had some really cool colors with that bright yellow tail. Most I catch out of that pond have a much more reddish orange tail and fins.

After doing some research online on sexing carp I am fairly certain the first smaller fish in pics is definitly a female with eggs and the longer 3 footer is a male.
