8.0 lb. Grass Carp caught by Kevin Frank fishing in North Carolina on 05/18/11
30.0" / 8.0 lb. Grass Carp caught by Kevin Frank fishing on Wednesday May 18, 2011 at 13:50 near Cary in Wake County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Foam popper with rubber legs a Bass Fly

Sorry, no location will be given out for this fish. The location was given to me by a friend who wants it to remain hidden. This fish was caught with a foam popper. The only reason I think this fish hit was due to the cicada hatch going on. I've tried to catch Grass Carp several times with little success. I was going after bass with the popper when a carp nipped at it. I got another one to actually inhale the fly. Pretty fun. To see more pics and read more about the catch please check out my blog. http://fishwithkev.blogspot.com/2011/05/my-first-grassy.html

The only reason I think this worked is because there was a 13yr cicada hatch going on in full swing. It seemed every fish in the area was keying in on those.

A vegatarian fish on a popper with legs on a fly rod is major fishing!
