Amos Behanna Is Chicago Carp King 2011

Recommended Posts

Congrats to Amos Behanna whose 22-7 Big Fish earned him the Chicago Carp King Buckle and related prizes at the 2011 Chicago Carp Classic! Thanks to all who took photos throughout the event. I had the good fortune to be near Amos' peg during the hookset, fight, and successful capture. Here are a few photos of Amos' achievement. Many more pics of the CCC will be available shortly.--Frank

Congrats to Amos ! I would like to say thank you to Frank, Dan, Tracy, Paul, and all other event organizers for their hard work.

I am looking for photos of biggest 3 carps (Amos, Bogdan, Larry) on unhooking mat. If anyone has it, please send it to me. I will have Casio start processing the print. I found some photos of anglers holding the carp. I am hoping someone took photos of carp itself on unhooking mat. Thank you so much for your help.

Congrats Amos!! It was a challenge for everybody working the fish safely past, around and over those mussels! That alone makes this even a greater achievement.

Was a pleasure meeting all the Indy guys!

Thanks Dave, My wife and I enjoyed fishing my first CCC and you and the rest of the gang did a great job running this event. The habor is a very nice place and the water looks like it is a pool.
