Biggest Silver Carp You Ever Saw!

By now you are probably familiar with the invasive nuisance species silver carp.  You know, the “flying fish” that jump out of the water like crazy.  You have probably seen news reports or YouTube videos of them.

I found another video this week that might be the biggest silver carp I have ever seen.

If you watch the slo-mo replay, notice that fish tail slaps both rods in the rod holders.  If I did not know better, that looked maliciously intentional!

You probably will not have to worry about a tarpon jumping over your boat this weekend, probably not even a silver carp, but keep your head on a swivel.  Be safe out there!
