Shore fishing with nightcrawlers on the bottom, and this one had my drag buzzing as it beelined for deeper water. Almost ran out of line. What a blast to fight it. Don't hate on the carp folks, they'll pull as hard as any freshwater fish out there!

      Great carp dude! I love me some carp fishing. Bass get all the glory for their fight but carp are the true champions in my book.

      Awesome carp, Jon! I haven't caught one of those in years, but I seem to remember them putting up a pretty good fight!
