As far as I can remember it's a 9 pound common carp from the Meramec river. Though there was also a similar sized channel cat from the Missouri river that I didn't weight but seemed close. Both on a medium-heavy rod with 20 pound line. Also had a nice Blue cat once in Illinois that might have nudged out the Missouri top ones so far.

Biggest trout is in my sig, 28" Rainbow caught just below the Rebar Hole on Taney.  Caught a grass carp that was about 3' long at Sunnen Lake (YMCA Trout Lodge), no idea on weight but the 8 lb line on the Zebco 33 didn't seem like enough the first few minutes of the battle.  It was a show from the bank and the crowd gathered.  No camera, and let it go.

Common carp around 15 pounds on 4# line.  Was trout fishing and kept seeing this carp in the hole swimming around.  I think I actually snagged it on the side of the mouth.  Had my boy with me at the time.  He was like 5 then and I let him reel it in! :)
