Giant mutant goldfish caught (102 lbs.)

Recommended Posts

I am told that goldfish are not the same thing as common carp. But have heard of that place, we have mirror carp here in our lakes but it’s uncommon to find ours over 30 pounds hard to hide when you get that big too many stabbers once before the bfing boom on the white river chain of lakes common carp would avg mid to upper teens with a few in the twenties now you catch more fish but a teen is the better fish far more 5 pounders now

Locals have probably been tossing McDonalds into the water.  I have seen the same effect on the locals that eat there.  It makes some whoppers.

Now that’s Burger King LOLNow that’s Burger King LOL

So more little carp.  Isn't that what we wanted to make the bass grow faster and bigger.  So we kill more and more big carp (bowfishermen and giggers), then they reproduce faster making more highly nutritious forage for bass and catfish.  I say that's a double win.
