Stayed out late two nights ago in dead calm water behind the house and BOOM!- this beautiful, 12-1  linear mirror! -the first I've caught out of the lake (but not a big four fish, its just set up that way:)!, then after midnight, this 19-1 that fought like its size (:), whereas the most up to this point were pretty lackluster fights-the water's getting warmer!!!

I find the creek carp are much longer, leaner and stronger than lake carp, even some of the newer lakes off creeks have longer fish. hard to see in pictures, but creek carp don't have the percent body fat as lake carp do; they're more dense and heavier on a inch by inch basis. It makes sense - a fat creek cap is not going to be able to swim effectively!.....:)
