US: caught an huge 106 lb Asian carp
A non official record for Asian carp was done in Kentucky; in fact, the past week a 106 pound - 48 kilo Asian carp was boated.
Angler Bill Schroeder, was fishing during an afternoon on the lake bass, when he hooked a fish he wasn’t exactly looking to catch.
He was bass fishing with only a 17 pound test line.
After over two hour battle the big carp pulled Schroeder’s boat an estimated 3 miles from Kentucky Lake through the adjoining canal and into Barkley Lake.
Here he was able to land this fish. The record setting Asian carp maxed out the scales at the local marina, reaching 106 lb.
