    Nice fish! Whatd you get her on?

    Oh you might wanna be careful fighting them, you can only fight grass carp for about 45 seconds before they start bleeding profusely out of their gills and can very easily die. Getting them in under 45 seconds after their first few runs can increase their chance for survival. Not sure if really matters though, grass carp arent native :/

    Could be hard to do with low pound test line though, cranking up the drag after awhile could break it off easily

    We caught it on a small piece of bread floated off in the current and a size 10 hook.
