Today I went fishing with a few of my friends. We all caught quite a few largemouth bass, sunfish, and I caught a real nice catfish.

Towards the end of the trip I managed to have a real nice carp bite. Unfortunately, I only got to see him jump and swim into the reeds. I ended up having to jump into the water to untangle the hook from the weeds.

A few minutes later I casted out again in the same area. What I’m guessing was the same fish bit again and I was able to reel him to shore. By the looks of it and the way he fought I’m guessing he was around 30lbs. Too bad my line snapped right as he reached shore. I’m glad I at least got to see him up close.

I plan on going back next weekend to try and actually get him up on shore. Pictures or it never happened.
