Hi all,
I had this lovely mirror carp at a small club lake after school yesterday. I caught it by fishing top 3s down the edge to the reeds, I used 19 hollo,0.19 straight through to a 16 hook. My 19 hollo was pulled all around the lake and I had no control of the beast.Unfortunately I left my scales at home so.....
What weight do you think????

Id be happy to give you 12lb plus for it.[^]

I think I have caught it 2 times, same sort of size and scale pattern but this time full of spawn. It must be pretty stupid then.

Very difficult to say whether it is the same fish as the two photos show different sides. The size is always going to be difficult to gauge without seeing the fish as you suggest that it was very broad, but that can't be seen from the photo.

For reference, this was 11.4 from a couple of weeks back...I thinkyours looks bigger

Id say about 12lb to 14lb looking at your other pic. purely on the width between your arms of the fish.
