Nice. I am a mirror carp guy. I have been known to sneak by a 20 + lb fish to cast at a 7 lb mirror a few feet away. Mirrors are rarer than 20 lbers anyway, and I dig the varying scale patterns. Last year my buddy Wendy berrell landed a 23 lb mirror...amazing fish.
Mirror carp are a separate species.
I'm sure that was supposed to be a question. Mirror Carp are not a seperate species, in fact Koi are not a seperate species, besides color and scale patterns they all look exactly the same, Koi are ornamental, domesticated Common Carp, Mirrors and Leathers are a scale mutation.
Grass Carp, Silver Carp, Bighead Carp, and Siamese Carp are all totally different fish.
Nice Job George! I'm still on the hunt for my first Mirror, I have a couple 20+lb Koi's I have been keeping my eye on in one small deep pond, still need one of them as well.
