14.0 in. Common Carp caught by Brian Shea fishing in New Jersey on 04/20/12
14.0" Common Carp caught by Brian Shea fishing on Friday April 20, 2012 at 21:37 near Riverside in Burlington County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a 4 lb line and a Worm

I've hooked a few carp over the years but was never able to land one. Today I hooked and landed 3. All were caught on nightcrawlers. They weren't giants but they were great fights on my ultralight rod with 4 lb line. I have my drag set at 1 lb so it got tricky when the fish got into the rivers current.

I also 7 white perch, 3 yellow perch, 2 bass and a bunch of sunnies.
