Hey guys, me and my buddy hit the Toronto Islands on Wednesday for some pike action, and wouldnT you know it, didn`t catch a pike...I was throwing my brand new cleo`s and My blue fox mepp #3 and my new Blackfury #3 mepp...I had I follow all day, but no touches...so me and my friend made our way over to swan pond for some bowfin or carp...he was throwing a worm on a hook, and I continued to throw my black fury...throwing out into the middle of the pond and pulling in I noticed i was pissing off the carp, so I moved down alittle bit more to where I thought a group was congregated, I threw into the middle of em, and wham...I musta riled him cause hi hit it hard and ran...started rapping me up in the twigs and branches that scoure the pond, my buddy thought I was crazy and just had a bunch of sticks...but the sticks fell away to reveal the largest fish I have caught...it was a 31 inch carp and weighed 17.5 lbs weighed on my buds scale, and measured by me with my cloth tape. I could not believe the mepp caught a carp, but I will take it. ...the weather was overcast and cool, with a slight breeze blowing from the east...very little clarity in the water. My buddy had a hard time of it today with his new baitcaster giving him trouble, and his back up rod not really performing for him, but he did well netting my fish. This is my largest fish in weight ever caught!! My blood is still pumping!!
