    Hi Guys,

    I told you in a previous post about the 32 lb carp I caught out of a farm pond. Well, here is the old pic, to prove it. I caught him in the mid 80's. There were huge carp in this small pond. The shadow from the photographer (my wife) blocks out a bit of the length of the fish. But, if you look close you may be able to see the tail.

    I think this was one of the grass eating carp or whatever name they have.

    The pic is between 20 and 25 yrs old, so Hey, yeah I did look young or should I say younger? Good grief, you must be trying to infer that I look old now :mad: or should you say older but more handsome and distinguished :grin-big:

    As for the carp, one of my local friends told me that it was one of the Israeli grass eating carp. As for being a blast to catch, well, it was good to get a fish that size but he really did not fight much at all.

    Very nice fish i have never caught one that big but i agree with the not much fight i have caught some around 20lbs and they never fought as good as say 2 threw 10 Lbs the smaller ones just seemed to fight harder.
