I mainly target the basic sunfish,however I do catch plenty of other species while "Perch Jerking"! Myself and good buddy Rick Aka Catyakker fished a hill country river and we caught a few nice Common Carp. Five in all. Two of the fish were submitted for water body records with the Texas Parks&Wildlife. The fish were pretty thin (possibly post spawn) but did manage to put up some SUPER FIGHTS especially on ultralight tackle. We caught a total of five and had one that pulled the hook out. The biggest fish was caught by Rick which was 32" in length and weighed 10.35 Lbs. I caught a fish that was 29". The other three fish were in the 20 to 28 inch range. All fish were released to fight again. Fish were caught on worms in 6 to 8 feet of water. Catching a good fighting fish on ultralight tackle. It just don't get any better. fish

Boy oh boy....Big fish on ultra light with 6 lb test. Takes a while to get them in, and keeping them out of the snags is, at times, something of a miracle. Sure is fun. Many thanks to the Banker to show me the way. cheer

Nice fish Banker and Catyakker! No doubt it was a blast on such light tackle. Congrats on the records as well! fish


Catch and release. The dream - to catch one of every species of Freshwater fish in our great state! If only I can resist Carp...
