You know the old saying, “A bad day of fishing beats a good day at work”? Well, a good day of fishing this week is going to offer a huge payoff. Organizers of the first-ever Connecticut Carp Open fishing tournament are offering $100,000 to one lucky angler.
The catch? (No pun intended.) There has to be a Connecticut record setting carp on the end of the line. A common carp weighs up to 31 lbs. The record in Connecticut is 43 pounds, 12 ounces.
