It was a hell of a fight and it took me a really long time. So its not really about the fish its more about catching a 10kg fish with a 5 kg rod and reel :D

Nice collection! I'm very curious how was the fight with that huge barbel. In reality (assuming you're lucky enough to catch such monster) would be hell on Earth!

Made the leadrboards today, caught it from the boat trolling. It was in the 10 meter depth area between the boat dock and the island.

I got a 14.899 KG Common carp on a 4.8 Kg line. It was exhausting. I'm not sure how long it took. A couple of hours at least. Last 15 minutes I saved on video, just so you can see how extremely slow it was. It was like I'd hooked an old rusty safe that someone had thrown in the lake.

Another campfire story for ya. Just caught 23.984 Kg trophy Grass carp on 8 Kg line at old burg lake and got 50365 Xp which was a lot for my level (18) and it gave me 137 silver. I've been running around half the lake fighting these 8-10 kg grass carps before and decided to take a strategic fishing spot at the entry to the southeast  bay so I could steer any big fish in to it. It worked. The whole fight I could stay at one spot which made the fight a whole lot quicker than it would have been out on the main lake. It took the diced cheese just after midnight and the fight lasted until the afternoon (game time). Next goal is 30 Kg.

Today went to Volkhov for first time not knowing what to expect, after some time trying few things, turn to trolling on atlantic salmon, i dont have right equipment for it (just 10kg setup which was allmost ready for repair) but i wont hook up big one and it will be fine :) and i was right i didnt get one, 2 strike on both rods at the same time, took one rod and started fight and by sound of other rod (break was on high) i was allready saying goodbye to line, leader and lure and it didnt pass much it spooled it. So now i knew that i need to save this fish so i can at least cover my losses, i played on safe used all coffe and tea, fish took me over the half map to the NW corner of map and gone to deep hole, started circling arround it and trying to lift it up, by this time my my reel was allmost gone, but when i have seen its head emerge from deep i wasnt shure what fish is it xD it head was to big for salmon, but at the end it was one big fat salmon that finished absolute record list and i was euphoric that i won that fight, untill i thinked, other one that got away had to be even bigger :D

 

sorry for long text but i am still under influence of this victory :)

Just now, Tofoloo said:

What's your technic for cath frogs**...ty;)

a Tele rod 17cm depth, feather float, #22-24 hooks and flies, also I might have been one of the few people to have caught a trophy on the cottage pond, but at the moment I'm catching live baitfish and attempting to find people who can use them so they won't expire.

So, I was fishing at the Winding Rivulet and thought i'd throw a few casts with the spinning rig. Just the basic first one. Caught a pike, and finally tiring it out and going for about 16 IG hours, it would not budge. So, I thought maybe I got the thing beached, and sure enough I had. However, I could not pick it up no matter what so I went back to try to get him in by force. So after a couple more hours trying to get it back in the water or drag it over land, i thought that maybe I could go back, equip another rod and then pull out my landing net. If only I had thought of that sooner, maybe I couldv'e got him in..But halfway there the fish let go and I lost him:(  

Oh, and I was standing at 100: something(Oxbow lake?) On the tip between the small calm inlet and river, so I could not walk with my rod anywhere because if i did the line would break.

Just for a future reference, would I have managed to get him in If i equipped another rod and landing net?
