    Hi,

    I caught a small grass carp on a topwater pop'r the other day while bass fishing in a small farm pord. I was wondering how common an occurance this is and if it's worth tryin' again. This fish hit harder than any other I've ever caught before so there is no way I snagged it.

    I'd say thats pretty amazing. I've never had a carp hit a topwater popper. I've had them hit jigs and all, but never that. It must have been real hungry.

    Never heard of one being caught on a pop 'r' but I have read that they are regularly caught on dry flies by flyfishermen.

    Same as reload heard fly fisherman catching them before with flies but not with a popper. Congrats on the catch.

    PS.

    I was looking at some carp photo's the other day. I ran across a photo that had a lure attached to his mouth.....

    Sounds like one for the scrapbooks to me! I have never heard of catching one on a lure. He must has thought it was a big bug or something!

    I don't see why it couldn't happen. After all, this summer I caught a 5# flathead on a Scum Frog!:roll_eyes:
