There was some confusion as to what the other two fish (besides Colby's bass) were. Not a carp, a Largescale sucker. Look here:

Largescale Sucker - Montana Field Guide

Never seen one before.

Wait what? That doesn't look anything like a carp? Joe sounded pretty sure that the 2 fish he caught were carp...

Had a blast by the way... it was great to meet everyone. I'm stoked that I was able to get my motor back together in time to participate. Thanks Fin.. and everyone who contributed..

Bernie is correct large scale sucker river dweller normally I just tend to call all suckers carp My salmon buddy calls them hoovers , probably infiltrated pond during high water events via irrigation canals .

well, sounds like the sun tans were more prevelant then the fish, looks like you guys had a great time. great looking pond, someday ill get there. Course colby pulls the 1 fish, damn pro. the way i look at it is, a skunk can't bring down an amazing oregon spring day. Wish i could have made it! great pics too!

Thanks for the invite to your place TR. I just wasn't feeling up to it when I heard the piter pater of rain on my camper roof & I was worn out from yesterday. From what colby posted about breaking in his new rod I should have draged my rear end out of bed. So just how many got slayed at your place?
