I finished up the Missouri trip today on the Des Moines River. I was seeing a lot of grass carp on the shoreline so I decided to take my small jig and ultralight rod and hook on a small plant. My biggest fish of the year was caught on some root
Gotta love some good off the cuff fishing techniques. Awesome fish!
Must've been a huge battle. COngrats!
Ahh, the good old Des Moines River.... love it to death because of the random cool fish it spits out from time to time! Awesome grassie, one of my favorite fish to catch.

Cool story, neat fish. I'm really jealous - they've been high on my 'want' list for a long time!
