Haha, I did the same down here in for the state record common carp last 3/16/09. I shot a carp that bottomed out my 50 lb. scale, it took over 45 minutes to get it in the boat. But wait here's the kicker, we had looked at the record wrong for Texas common carp and thought it was way bigger than the one I shot. So we took a picture and thought nothing more of it until the next morning I looked again and the old state record was 46.xx lbs. So the old record still stands and my "record" is long gone.
I will post pics of it on here later, it's a beast! (Sorry for jacking the thread congrats on the new Ky state record and realizing it)
