My brother (Soggy Moth on here) shot the biggest white amur (aka big head carp) we've ever killed today. This fish was 51" long and had a 35" girth! I found a formula online (Girth squared x length divided by 800) and came up with 78 lbs. All I know is this is a very large fish! :thumb:



I didn't get to go with him today, but I'll be down there all weekend chasin' some more whales! :thumb:

** New State Record** White Amur (Bighead Carp) by Soggy Moth!

Soggy Moth called the G&F in Brinkley this morning and they met him in Stuttgart to see his fish. They weighed it on certified scales at the post office and it weighed 70 lbs. 8 oz. after laying out all night dehydrating. They estimated the fish would have been closer to 100 lbs. while still fresh. :eek:

There was no previous catagory for the White Amur, so he's now the state record holder for unrestricted tackle. :thumb:

I predict we'll break his record this weekend.....stay tuned. :up:

We went this afternoon and shot 3 more white amur and 3 silver carp. .270Win got the biggest one today, but it was 12 lbs. smaller than my record fish. :razz: The others were in the 40 ~ 50 lb. range. .270 will post some pictures tomorrow.

Well, now that Soggy Moth is the new state record holder he's thinks he's too good to shoot at "non-record" sized fish....but that's fine because I got to have most of the fun. :thumb:

A few pics from this weekend.....

This was my biggest white amur, 60+ lbs.
