21 lb winona carp

Recommended Posts

Guest carpmanjake

on sunday i went fishing on lake winona. fishing was slow since the spawn was still going. i sat around for hours without a bite. after maybe 3 hours i began to doze off. then came the best sound anywhere. the solid 1 tone of a carp. i got up and line was burning off my reel. i turned off the baitrunner and set the hook. i could tell it was a BIG fish. how big i wasnt sure. then i remembered i didnt bring my net. mainly because winona isnt known for big carp. then i remembered "could this be the big melanistic from last summer?" after 10 minutes of tug of war the carp started to tire. it surfaced about 20 feet away. i knew it was an easy 20 lber. but it wasnt my melanistic.

i called a little boy that was walking by over to hold my rod while i landed the fish.

it was 21 lb 2 oz. the biggest ive caught from that lake.

i did not have my camera with but i did have my KRZR and i have pics on there im gonna try to upload the pics with my webcam cable. and get it on here. ortherwise i could just take a pic of the screen

... well had to take a pic of the screen. this was the best of the newer bunch

the fish was a caught on hair rigged glowbait carpjuice flavored corn with a peice of yellow foam in the shape of a kernal of corn to float it 6 " above the muddy leafy bottom bottom.
