    Can someone tell me if this is the correct/most current top 5 carp in the US ?

    #1- Mississippi, Curtis Wade, 74 lbs. Pelahatchie Lake ,June 13, 1963
    #2- Michigan, Dale E. France, 61.5 lbs. Wolf Lake ,1974
    #3- District of Columbia, David Nikolow, 57.81 lbs. Tidal Basin ,June 19, 1983
    #4- Wisconsin ,Mike Prorok, 57.12 lbs. Lake Wisconsin, August 28, 1966
    #5- Minnesota, Frank J. Ledwein, 55.05 lbs. Clearwater Lake ,July 10, 1952

    Ohio is one of 13 States to have a carp record over 50 lbs.

    i don't think those are all rod and line(if it matters),that 74 lber i believe was taken
    by a diver with a spear,but i dont know fo sure.the boys over at cag
    could probably clear it up.

    i believe early last year Scott O. from Mass.started sorting it all
    out.and i think he is responisble for creating that list.so it should
    be up to date.

    Cool, if Scott O. had a hand in it....it should be correct.

    Just nice to see that the USA can produce carp as large as the rest of the "best" carp countrys over-seas. Seeing as the world record is 82 lbs. from Romania.

    Been fishing any Greg?
    If ya head down this way, give me a shout.
