Huge Carp Through The Ice

  1. Hit the ice on the Big Eau Pleine Reservoir in Wisconsin to try to catch a few walleye before dark. We did manage to catch a few and I ended up hooking into a fish that I thought was going to be a 10#+ walleye. Head shakes, peeling out drag, and finally got it close to the hole and here it was a huge carp.

    I had tried to target carp while ice fishing multiple times last winter and did not have any success. Tried corn on tip ups and small jigs with wax worms but did not even get a bite.

    It sure was a fun fight but there was definitely some disappointment when it wasn't a 10# walleye like I thought.

    First time I had ever caught a carp through the ice, wasn't expecting that!
