Carp, Silver

<p>This 4.5 lb slab of meat hit a #3 Mepps that I hadn&#39;t yet started reeling. I was letting it tumble with the current and sink into the sauger/walleye/catfish zone. There was a silver flash as the carp hit it, and I got busy fighting what I thought was another big drum. When I got it on shore, it flopped and the line broke. It lunged toward the water and I managed to block its escape by accidentally stepping on its tail long enough to grab it.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
