Any excuse I can use to post this pic, this thread is it! This is a pic of me holding a common grass carp. Our lake is stocked with them as they keep the weeds in check. I wasn't smiling because I wasn't sure what the fish was going to do. I had just removed a hook from the side of his mouth. Someone had hooked him and they must have then cut the line or something, because he was up near the water's edge tangled in the line with the hook. Before I released him I hollared at Wade to snap a pic since I doubt I will ever be holding a live fish that big ever again. I don't think tah1975's fish looks like this fish??

I like to think it was smiling because I saved him. In reality he was probably gasping for air for all the stress I put him through getting that hook cut off of him.

whatever it is, it's pretty cool. I'd definately keep it around for a while

I know it sounds weird but is there any chance a bird could have dropped her into your pond? It happened once to some neighbours of ours, they actually saw the fish fall through the air, and land near their pond, they put it in their pond and it's been fine ever since!

Perfect fins, No puncture wounds. But I guess it COULD be possible
