Boise-area angler smashes Idaho fishing record for grass carp with 46-pound fish

UPDATED: Tue., Oct. 19, 2021

A Meridian angler’s recent catch blew state records out of the water, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game said in a news release. Cris Endicott landed a 46.7-pound grass carp, a large freshwater fish species from Asia, while fishing the Snake River on Oct. 10 with a twin-tail bass jig. Endicott’s catch took the state weight record for rod-and-reel grass carp, but it also dwarfed the record for archery-caught and catch-and-release fish of the same species. Endicott’s carp measured 50 inches long — 10 inches longer than the catch-and-release record of 40 inches. The archery record was 39.5 pounds and 40.63 inches long.
