    I got off work around noon today and decided to go to the kansas river and try to caught a flathead. It took me about thirty minutes to caught two little shad and one big carp. I started off with just the shad and had on little hit. which stripped my bait off. So all I had left was a carp. I cut a hunk of meet off and threw it on my hook. After about five minutes my pole just bent over. Right as I set the hook I knew it was something big; was hoping it was not a gar. It only took me about one minute to get her in which shocked me. I weighd her and my scale said it weighed 27.5. It could just be the rush of the moment but it felt like it weighed a little more than that. My scale is old so it could be wrong. What do you guys think does it look about 27 pounds?
