I wish I could have weighed it. I thought about taking it to a bait shop, but my client was on the clock looking for bass. I knew the State record was 70-lbs, but I think to qualify, the fish must be caught in the mouth by hook and line, this one was snagged in the tail with a crankbait. It put up a pretty good fight, near 30 minutes worth! At 4'-2" long, and nearly as big around as it was wide, I'm sure it went well ove 80-lbs. I've heard of 100-lb+ carp being shot with a bow.
