Best Accidentally Catch Yet

Ryan Lamb

Wayne New Jersey

I was out on on the lake close to home fishing for largemouth having some fun on light tackle. I was was using a lure called a keitech little spider with a 1/16 jig head. I was fishing along a rocky area bouncing the jig through the rocks . Then I hookup with something much bigger than a 2 lb bass. After a 45 minutes I finally manage to land the carp. It would have been landed sooner if I had brought a net with me or had someone else with me. When I did finally land it the color was amazing all I did was take a quik picture and get its weight then let it go.
