Couple of carp and a dinosaur


Recommended Posts

Hit a local pond with my son last night.  Looking for catfish and maybe carp and the carp cooperated.  Then a catfish rod starts a slow run and dinosaur on.  Biggest we have ever caught on a rod and man was it pissed to come out of the water.  Almost went swimming with it twice.  Such a rush and then the slow walk back to the water.

All seriousness good times make great memories 

We can visit the pond together next time and she can grab him then.  Will be bigger than yesterday after a few more days of eating anything it wants!!!

shouldnt pick them up by their tails. but non the less a great day. nice job. 

Honestly never knew that.  Was told when I was younger that was only way to grab and move a snapper without getting bit.  Still learning every day.

Haha!!  Good times down the pond!!  Always amazed at those snappers!!  Got a good one for the kids up in Cape cod yrs ago!!  

 But if I remember correctly from my Rutgers vertebrate zoology course…those carp are older on the Ol time line of life  than that dinosaur!!  I think any bottom sucking fish critters have rank on all other critters….& that bottom sucking mouth eventually evolved to a jaw to predate on other critters.
