A huge grass carp has been stalking the shores of my local pond every time I have gone fishing. I think it is a game where he mocks me now. I sneak up on him, he fakes being interested and then waits until all is quiet and then bolts away with waves following him. Of course, I am in the zone and being super ninja stealthy, so I jump and look like an idiot.
However, I had a sweet victory yesterday. I fooled him for once. I landed a carp carrot right in front of his face and he couldn't resist. I set the hook and the fish was on for a split second. He shot away with intense speed and my line went slack. Needless to say, I was super confused. I pulled in the line and all I had on was my carp carrot and a single scale from the grass carp. A token to me and yet again the fish mocked me. Dang it.
