    Alright - yesterday I fishing below the Carlyle Lake dam for flatheads and large channels. I was using a typical Carolina rig setup: 2 ounce bank sinker, swivel, 12" leader, and a 6/0 Kahle hook with a 6# live shad. I toss it out, and a few seconds later my clicker is screaming. When I set the hook, all heck breaks loose. About 5 minutes later, I pull a 16# Asian Carp out of the water. It is certainly not odd to snag these things since they are everywhere, but something wasn't right. The fish was snagged in the side with a huge treble hook (I was using a Kahle). My sinker, swivel, leader, and hook were gone. Upon closer inspection, my line was not even tied to the treble hook, but jammed up under two of the tines. My guess is that this fish had been snagged previously and broken off, swam into my line, my line ran under the 3 tines of the treble hook and when I set the hook I broke my line and jammed the line into the treble. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it.

    that is weird, I was down at the river yesterday snagging buffalo, and on my first cast with a 12/0 treble, I snagged one and he took it to the bottom and within seconds had me hung. I lost the hook and the buff, but who knows if he is alive, probably got away though.

    Yes, I filleted and gutted him, so I should have plenty of cut bait for awhile. I do still have the hook with a few inches of line attached. I'll post a pic for y'all.
