Thanksgiving Carp

When we are down in Destin, we do a lot of fishing. Normally we just catch little Blue Gills or possibly turtles (we just fish off the dock that is in the backyard). Thanksgiving morning my dad caught a HUGE carp! It was big enough for us to have a Thanksgiving Feast from (if we would have kept him, but we merely Catch and Release). I think it took about 20 minutes to get him 'in the boat'. We guesstimate it was about 36 inches (measuring the recycle bin Ryan helped scoop him up in).

The video is funny because I didn't realize I was still taking video of the catch (I thought I had turned it off... as you can see, Ryan normally handles the 'nice' camera :) ).
