Got out to Decker a few minutes after 8 today. It was a lil chilly even (55F), water temps were 73-75 and barely any wind. Fished the back side of the lake for about an hour and a half and only managed 2 dinks. As it got a lil warmer tried jigging a spoon on some fish I located deep. No such luck but i started noticing fish a lil shallower 15-25 ft so i decided to give a DD22 a try. After a few minutes trolling I felt something tap the lure very lightly I even thought it might have been debris but then I felt it again and set the hook. I'd brought an 8ft saltwater rod with 25lb line just for the DD22 and the drag just went peeling off so I tightened as much as I dared and eventually got the fish to surface and it half jumps out of the water about 40-50 yds behind the boat. All I see is the white side of something huge. At this point I'm thinking this is one huge hybrid (still haven't caught one). Well I battle with the fish for a few minutes and finally get him up close and again all I see is this really wide white thing in the water .. i almost thought it was the underside of a huge turtle. Not a turtle though but one huge carp .... or at least what I think is a carp (never caught one of those before either). This thing was well over 2 feet maybe close to 3 and it sure was fat. I caught an 8lb LMB earlier this year but this thing was huge. If I had to guess I'd say it was easy 25-30 lbs. There was no way it was gonna fit in my net and there was a good chance of me falling over or tipping the boat and i wasn't going to eat it so I just got my DD22 back while it was in the water and let it swim off. My only regret was that I was alone and couldn't get a pic :-/. had my phone but this took all my attention without trying to get a pic. I took the phone out but I was having to much trouble and just gave up. The fish was almost white in color or very light yellow. Wouldn't mind catching a few more of those!
