This was a first for me....a fan tailed common carp. These are rare and are generally only found in certain sections of the CT River. It is a beautiful fish with long draping fins and tail. I got one today and it was a beast of a carp that weighed exactly 29 lbs!
The fish was caught on a combo bait of 2 kernels of maize and a pink artificial corn on the hair rig. I also used a method ball that was packed around the sinker.
This is my biggest carp of the year so far.
