No one knows this better than the unofficial new world record holder for largest carp Tim Webb.
He landed the massive 222 pound (100.5 kg) record-breaking Siamese carp while in Ban Pong, Thailand. The fish easily shattered the official world record of 150 pounds.
It was an hard 90 minute fight before he was able to land the fish.
