Delaware River carpsucker

Carpsucker, Quillback
Size: 
22" 6.5 lb

Caught and released a 22" 6.5 lb quillback carpsucker in the tidal Delaware River on my last cast of the day with my homemade corn meal bait. It was bigger than some stae record quillbacks but NJ doesn't recognize it in the NJ Record Fish List.

Awesome fish, that dark coloration is stunning on a usually all silver species!

That is a great specimen.  I'm still wondering about that old Mitchell 300 reel - how long have you used it?  Have you replaced any parts?  I think I have one in the basement that I'd like to bring out of retirement.
