Recommended Posts

I am Very Curious as to what type of carp this is, I was fishing with my friend on Wed. July 11th and one of my friends caught this carp. I Would just like a answer to what kind it is Common or Mirror. Caught in the South Fork Crow River.

Pretty sure it's a mirror carp. Or a regular carp that's had too much goo from the bottom - ha-ha I know...looks like a typical mirror to me.

100% Mirror Carp!

Cool catch! You don't see too many of them around here. I have seen one in person. They are very neat grin.gif

Yep, definitely a mirror carp. It looks like someone started scaling them and stopped before they got to the head! smile.gif

Basically, a common carp with scattered scales. The rest is just smooth skin, kind of like a catfish.

It's a Mirror Carp. They are somewhat rare in most places, so that's a nice catch. The lake I grew up on in So Dak has quite a few of them (relatively speaking). Each and every one is completely different looking. Some only have a few scales, and some are covered with scales that are larger than a .50cent piece.

I'd say Mirror Carp. Looks different from the fact that part looks like it has no scales. Caught two this summer from a marsh the DNR was drainning. One had partial mirror scales and the other a 30"one was fully covered.Kinda pretty and I guess you could say halographic.
