    I didn’t feel like working this afternoon so I went fishing with a buddy. 4 beers and 1 hour later I hooked into this thing… OK, snagged, but it was still a blast!

    No idea how big it is but I’m 6’2″ and it’s longer than from above my head to below my waist, I could not get close to getting my hands around it’s gut. Amusing thing is, a bigger one straightened a hook out on me earlier.

    Enjoy.

    Hehehe…. snagged = Alaskan fishing
    Snag Fishing = To shoot monkies in a barrel.

    So was it timiing, or did you see him?

    In Alaska it is illegal to fish like this, cause it is all to easy to catch 100 fish in an hour this way. I saw it as fair, there is so much food in these rivers they don’t take bait less it flows into thier mouth without having to move for it.

    What kind of fish is that? I can’t tell without the saran wrap on it.

    It was perfectly planned. This is a small private pond where there are too many of these fish in it. The fish is a grass carp and in a pond this size you should only have maybe 3 of them there. They eat excess vegetation and keep your pond clean. Anyway, the landowner has 16, er… 15 now, fish in this pond and I am charged with getting them out of the pond. We tried the tazer boat to no avail so now I’m snagging them with 2 treble hooks suspended below a bobber. They swim in a big school right on the surface, when they swim by I snag them. Easy peasey lemon squeezey.

    This fish is nothing like anything in Alaska. They are not native to the area and used only to keep weeds in check. Unfortunately they got loose and are in a lot of riverine systems. There is no quota on catching them nor are there any rules on how to catch them.

    I need to get out and catch one of the big ones.

    Ahh nice, well it was as big as some of the smaller king salmon.

    Hrmm, so, you can really be inventive in catching your prey, how fun!! Drag lines come to mind, multiple bobbers and hooks. AH ha! Drag nets!!! Made with barbed wire! 😈

    You got a chore with this pond. At the river in AK you could stand at the shore of it and beat the rageing water with your snag hook and yank out 10 an hour.
