Species: 
Carpsucker, Highfin
Location: 
Des Moines River
Date Caught: 
Thursday, July 20, 2017
Notes: 
Hell YEAH! I was weeding through some god-awful drum bites trying to catch the carp I could see tailing and I saw my line slowly start to go. Not.a quick rapid bite like the drums. I thougt I'd finally found a carp, but was MUCH happier. Nightcrawler and a size 8 octopus hook did the trick.

Thanks all you guys this catch meant a lot. I guess it came at some cost, because the moment I got home I got sick with some sort of stomach bug that's keeping me grounded for the next couple days. It's a bummer, but oh well. 

Andy- thanks for the golden fish award!
