New record set for largest carp caught in North Dakota
A Tappen man now has bragging rights for the largest carp in North Dakota.
The North Dakota Game and Fish Department says Derek Barnick shot this 31 pound, 9 ounce common carp with a bow and arrow at Lake Etta-Alkaline April 21.
The fish beat the old record by 9 ounces held by Austin Loberg of Thompson.
Loberg reeled that one in from the Sheyenne River in 2003.
