11.5 lb. Grass Carp caught by Mike S fishing on Saturday November 22, 2008 at 16:37 near Durham in Spokane County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Rapala Rattletrap Perch a Lipless Bait by Rapala International

I thought I had a monster Bowfin. Either way, I'm on a foul hook roll. This Carp was hooked in the tail and fought like a monster. Thanks to my support crew Jamie and Ian for helping land this guy. It got off my lure and Ian pinned it down in the water so it wouldn't get away. Thanks guys.

Had to re-classify this one. After the catch today I noticed a significant difference in the mouth's of these two carp. Also the dorsal fin was quite different.

Thanks for the comments. I hope the fishing stays consistent through these colder months.

The carp is cool, the story of the crew is even cooler. Would have been fun to have been there. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you. It's amazing thinking that little rattletrap was capable of pulling in this fish. I had just respooled my reel the day before. I forgotten what it was like to catch a carp. He put up a great fight.
