11.0" / 1.0 lb. Common Carp caught by David Smith fishing on Wednesday October 12, 2011 at 15:56 near Cary in Wake County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a bi-color grub with a small cut bait teaser a Grub

Fishing for Crappie in a man made reservoir when a tug on the line suggested more than a Crappie. Reeled in this odd carp and released it after documenting the catch. I did some research on it and found that this is a hybrid Koi called a Butterfly or Dragon Carp. Looks like someone has been releasing their unwanted pets!
