Similar setup to JohnS, 4lb line 14 hook sweetcorn, in margins (caught others but had no scales, though prolly wont top that size)
Got it printed in a mag actually (though they changed the weight to 14lb for some reason), id post the pic as some confusion over type,common or ghost, and seems u peeps might know, but dont know how to.

My largest is a 43lb common, caught on fly fishing gear on one of the vast, lonely windswept limestone reefs of Lake Michigan, at the very tip of the Old Mission Penisula in Grand Traverse Bay.
She is unnamed, and had likely never seen a hook before mine, and will likely never see another.
Is this a "proper" fish?

Don't seek a second opinion.

My PB of a bit over 43 was taken on fly gear, as have been most of my large carp.
I use flys tied to resemble small crayfish, or I use a number of nymphs or saltwater shrimp patterns.
