Grass Carp vs. Ultralight

Grass Carp vs. Ultralight
35" Grass Carp

Jeff Buckingham

Auburn Alabama



Was out catching bluegill on my ultralight pole with some same plastics and catching nice bluegills. On one cast I set the hook and it felt like a log until it took a nice power run. About 10 minutes later, I was able to land the 35" carp and the pole and 4 lb line did its job. Nice fish for being my first grass carp.
