    Round about 20 I guess. Many moons ago my younglings took me fishing up to the Gallipolis Locks for Fathers day. Tail hooked that beast throwing a large "Big O"crankbait. You wanna talk about a fight! Thought I had the biggest Striper Bass in the river!
    Never did understand why his tail did not shred. Musta been all the praying! LOL!

    In the days before carrying scales I would guess several in the 15-20 pound range from park ponds where I grew up. Lotsa fun on ultralight tackle!!!!

    man it has been like 20yrs since i have fished for Carp I use too catch them on whole kernnel corn and doughballs soaked in garlic powder. they range from 15 - to 50+. this Question has brought back some fun memories for me back in the day out on the river. my personal best Carp weighted in at 52lbs

    I have seen they taken bigger than that.

    Caught one in a golf course pond, many moons ago, that was 20+. It was a grass carp that took my nightcrawler. It turned that poor little #2 wire hook from a J shape to more of a ) shape. As soon as he touched the bank he was off.

    My biggest so far is 20lbs, but many in the upper teens. I usually stick with wheaty balls and canned corn. But have had luck with nightcrawlers, plain bread, mealworms, stink bait, livers, and once a spinner bait (caught in the mouth too).
