Some Heavy Manitoba Common Carp

Pictured below are 3 of the more impressive common carp I have caught so far this season. Each one surpassed 33 inches in length and they each weighed over 30 pounds!

First Mirror Carp

I spend a handful of sessions on the waters edge targeting common carp each year as the quest for a personal best is always on my mind be it weight or length. Even deeper in my fishing obsessed brain is the desire to catch a mirror carp and to say they are rare around these parts might be an understatement. A unique semi scaleless pattern on each fish is due to a genetic mutation and some can be almost completely void of scales. Luck was on my side the other day when I finally landed my first mirror carp and while it was not huge, it was definitely a fish I will remember for quite a while.
