Decided to spool up my ultra lite rods with fresh 2 lb Berkley Xl-smooth casting after watching 1Rod1Reel's video using it, I really just wanted to see what i could land on it.
I grew up fishing the same size rod i use in this video with 4 lb line and caught all sorts of big fish in freshwater and saltwater even. i have actually fished 2 lb line before, im not going to lie though half way through this fight i was wondering what the heck i got myself into.
the current IGFA line class record for common carp is 31 pounds 3 ounces more than likely i just bested that by a few pounds.
location - Town Lake, Austin, Texas
Rod used - Quantum micro lite
Reel- Quantum Optix 10
Line- Berkley XL Smooth catsing 2 lb
