Took my granddad out carp fishing with me, his first time ever fishing for them on purpose. Unfortunately, he lost his only fish of the day to a snag, although he did land a 20-25lb Spiny Soft Shell Turtle that he promptly proceeded to cut the line on. We ended up getting soaked trying to stay just a bit longer to put just one more fish on the bank, but it was a blast nonetheless. All fish were caught on a method mix of oats and creamed corn and were released to fight another day.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
My first of the day, a solid 15lb 4oz fish. She didn't fight too hard but sure felt nice in my hands. Lost a fish shortly after her to a hook pull though.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I knew this place held some big fish and was lucky enough to land this 20lb 6oz beauty! This is the biggest fish I've ever seen caught in person, and my new PB! Looks like she'll be ready to produce the next generation of bigguns pretty soon.
(Pardon the finger, my granddad is a bit old to work new technology)

Our trip was cut short because of the rain, but after seeing me catch those fish my granddad isn't going to want to wait too long to get back out again.

New to angling. Catch and release. The dream - to catch at least one of every species in our great state (if I can manage to resist carp)!

Thanks Banker, Pot Licker, Laker, JJ, and Spaz! Passed up my dad's 18.5 from January, he's already itching to get out and beat this one!

TXMulti-species, your post fishing with your granddad brought tears to my eyes. My grandpa started me fishing when I was two in 1948. And he too loved to catch those Carp. Although we just used Wheaties dough balls, those memories will never leave me. I feel his presence most every time I am sitting on the back waiting for that pull. Thanks for the emotions. By the way those are some mighty fine fish you're holding.

Glad to hear I brought back some good memories. Fishing with your loved ones is without a doubt my favorite way to spend a day.

Thanks Fitz and Gitter! It's only going to get tougher to break my PBs as they rise, but I'm looking forward to the challenge. Next up on the list is a 25+ Carp and a 20+ Buff.
