Nothing beats listening to the drag scream on a double digit Carp. Trying to Control, or even gain line, on a large fish using light/medium action spinning gear with 10 Lb. line can be a real heart thumper. I have caught a number of Reds out of a Kayak, and I can attest Carp are very much equal in fight. Banker is a true sportsman and great fisherman and I feel very fortunate to have been able to fish with him.
