Title: Mirror carp
Post by: waterlike on Aug 13, 2022, 02:35 PM
I was jigging with an ice Pole, 6 lb test, little rattle bait right under the pontoon. When the fish hit it immediately almost broke the pole and then rose directly to the surface, and then went on 100 yard run. Was down to my mono backing. Eventually after about 15 minutes got it in. Seriously considered just cutting my line but eventually he got tired.  I tried to weigh it but immediately drop the scale into the water. I have a 15 lb anchor and it was much heavier than that. Could be anywhere between 20 to 30 lb.
