nice captures

 

Do the bigheads put up much of a fight?  (may be tough to tell if they were tail snagged) How do they stack up next to the commons?

 

They haven't made their way up to my neck of the woods yet...........

When you see them swimming, not impressed-seem to be slow moving (at least in the cover) but when snagged, they take off- seem to be sprinters as opposed to the endurance of the common carp.....Huge number of them at the end of the cove massing along a culvert inflow-you could watch them gulping/filtering the water...too bad ya can't hook them though........they'll be there soon enough unfortunately...:(.
