The exotic bighead carp can get large, like this one caught by Mr. McLelland from Jones Bluff Lake, Alabama. They are found in several river systems from Alabama. Please keep any of these you catch.
Be careful; bighead carp will jump when a motorboat is running in the area.
Joe Zdenek III foul hooked this bighead carp with a shallow running crankbait at Three Rivers off of the Tombigbee River on September 25, 2010 around 6:30 am. This fish was about 35 inches long and weighed around 35 to 40 pounds.
Bighead carp caught below Millers Ferry Lock & Dam on 4/26/05 and 4/27/05
Do not release aquatic bait when done fishing; it is illegal and irresponsible.
