One day I was just messing around and I was bass fishing there was no wind and i decided to walk around a bit. So when I decided to walk around I seen a lot of fins sticking out of the water the moment I seen those fins i knew that those were carp i didn't know how big they were. So I went back to my house grabbed a few cans of corn and it didn't take long before one of the Monster carp hit my bait. It took me about an hour to just see how big the fish was. It also took three of my friends to help get him in. when i finally got him in there were a few gentlemen who told me that I should put the fish in the newspaper but I just decided to just release him safely which also took about twenty five minutes.
