On top of catchn bout 15 of them elusive catchn from tha bank crappie I hooked into this monster that dint show itself until well into the fight. Upon hook set I was thinking 4lb crappie then came the screaming drag which quickly changed my mind to 10lb LMB then came the no jumping & 4 or 5 more line peeling runs which changed my mind too maybe a big gar then it just would not give up so now I'm thinking river monster.....LOL By this time a crowd has formed on the bank as well as a couple kayakers in the water....I don't give up on a fight to often but know my arm is starting to burn & all I want is my jig back so me knowing the bank is to steep for me to do anything with this BIG unknown feesh I ask for help from the yakkers as the feesh finally shows itself being a BIG carp or buffalo this things just will not give up.....
I'm getting laughed at cause all I want is my jig back so finally this thing lays on it's side & one of the yakkers without a net grabs my line & finally my jig....
Wow what a fight those things put up & on my lil 6'crappie set-up with 6lb Suffix.....
The pics don't do this feesh any justice....
Thanks to the yakker for the assist.....

SK, two weeks ago, from the bank I had the same situation. Square bill crank bait. Thought it was the lake record bass. Pulled like a freight train. When I finally saw it I tried to muscle it and it broke me off. Fun stuff. I lost a jointed jerk bait to a carp several years ago. Who would think they would bite on any kind of jig?
Caught some goo with plastics also.
Great story.

Those carp and buffalo make great cut bait for blue cats.
