    I posted awhile back about my uncle catching a 27lb carp out of a pond on 4lb test well here is a pic of the pic and a pic of the lure he caught it on.They released it to the river because they didnt want it to die and the owners of the pond wanted it out so....CPR her it is!

    That's a pretty nice size carp to be caught on 4#test line. I have some 4#test line that is some of the toughest line I have ever seen. I know you can catch some big fish on 4#test line,the secret is having your drag set properly! Tell you uncle congratulations on catching a nice carp.

    Kenny,
    That carp your uncle caught was a nice fish,but no where near a state record. If I'm not mistaken, I believe the official state record for carp in the state of Iowa is 50#.

    Catch a lot of big carp in late winter around here usually right after iceout. Lots of nice channels too. Use ultralight spinning gear and 4lb test. One of the best lures is a little jighead, eigth ounce usually, and a tube by panfish assassins. My favorite color is grey with blue fleck almost exactly like the one in the pictue, or the bigger fish and channels usually come on a color called Electric Chicken.

    Nice fish. Dru

    4# test, 20+lbs. target, that's my kind of fishing! He should consider himself a lucky man! I've hooked man big fish on light line, caught several, and lost more. Every second you fight the fish is one second closer to a catch or one second closer to another "the one that got away" story.
