Kickapoo River 2 feet higher than typical. suckers and red horse spawning. Threw some stick baits....got really excited on a big fish hook up and noticed no head shaking and staying on the bottom. Six minutes later I got a look at a giant carp i had snagged in back fin. It took me another three minutes to net. Carp don't get photos taken of them. Next cast I hooked a big fat sucker. took a photo of it not the carp...not sure why. ....carp was in 20 pound range. arm got tired from fighting it.
The sucker came in like a stick.
