    I am a new member getting up to my 10 posts so I can look at more photos. I caught a Carp that was 35 inches long with a 28 inch girth when I was a teenager. I was fishing the lower Allegheny River with a jig head and grub tail. Can anyone approximate how much the fished weighed? Maybe 25-40 Pounds?

    I caught a 31" Carp earlier this year that weighed 19.5# so your fish would be up in the 20's somewhere.
