Caught My First Koi!

Recommended Posts

I was fishing at Lewisville Lake in TX this weekend and caught this BEAUTIFUL 10lb koi!  This is, by far, the most wonderful fish I’ve ever caught.

When I removed my hook, I saw it had another hook in the other side of its mouth.  So I removed it at well prior to releasing this wonderful fish back into the lake.  I examined the other hook I’d removed and noted it was a nice, new hook designed for carp, so I stuck it in my tackle box.

About an hour later, a man and his 10 year old son who are “regulars” fishing the same venue came up to me, and the father asked,” I heard you caught an orange carp?”  I said I had, and he asked, “Did it have a hook in its mouth?” I replied that it did.  Then he stated, “My soon hooked an orange carp here last night, but right when he got it up to the surface it broke the line.”  I opened my tackle box, handed his son the hook I’d removed, and said, “Here’s your hook back!”

Best fish AND backstory combo ever!

What are the chances of that happening?!!  It can be a small world sometimes.  Nice story and congratulations on your koi.  (And thanks to you the kid doesn't have to hit his father up for another carp hook).
