I bought a new rod and spinning reel last month, set it up with 4 lb test figuring that would be good for stocked trout at Sand Lake. Also, while fishing a pond, let them fight, they aren't getting away. Beautiful day today, decided to hit the pond this evening. Threw a tube jig a bunch of times, no hits, changed to a new lure. A cast or two and I had a strike. I knew right away that it was a big fish, figured it was a catfish. Took 40 minutes of fighting before I got a glimpse of it. Snagged it by the tail, it had all the leverage and was a BIG grass carp. It swam off after the pic. We both need a nap.
