Capt. Paul K Tawczynski of Charter the Berkshires reports that his client, Andrew Plumridge from Sharon, Massachusetts, recently landed a 34-pound, 2-ounce carp while ice fishing on an undisclosed section of the Housatonic River. The fish measured 35″ long and had a 27″ girth.
It was caught while jigging a PK Flutterfish lure, and was one of three hooked that day.
Plumridge fought the fish for nearly 30 minutes, after which it was measured, weighed on a certified scale and released.
