Week 10: Lunker Quest for Graceclaw Created: Sun, 08/09/2020 - 03:53 Default: No

Caught three 25" carp before I got this one while reeling in for the night, on crappy old 8 lb test and a medium-light rod. Weighed in at 9.5-10 lbs and was clearly over 26, though the hard-tape made a correct measurement surprisingly difficult. Image shows 29/30. I had a blast angling for and catching bigger carp again, thanks once again to this contest for making me get out and do it!

Nice carp for sure. It's amazing how many medium sized carp a person can catch just under 26". I had the same thing going on and kept thinking "all I need is one that's two pounds bigger" but for every 10 pounder there seems to be 50 or so 6-8 pounders that will bite first. Catching a 10 pounder is no joke.
