    Hi Everyone. I was Talking with the DNR Park Officer At Lake Manawa Here in Council Bluffs Iowa This Morning in the store and he told me that a #62 pound Grass carp was cought at the lake this past weekend! A young man about 22/23 years old got it on rod and reel. Boy that must have put up a Fight, Wish I could of seen it. Ill post more when I get some more details.
