He ended up sitting on top of the motor and fought it for at least another 20 minutes, and finally got it in the net. It was at least a 25 pounder and it wore him out, but we would not let him quit (or would we help him). He was so much fun in his formative years. And yes, I can vouch that he loves the mighty carp.
Yeah you rotten scoundrels left me alone with a Sage 590LL and beowulf. Lucky to be alive, I am after that duel.
BTW I caught his cousin this year on that same bank during the cicada mania. I was better equipped this go round with an 8 wt XP. He lost, but still not as quick as my arms would have liked.
