Giant Wiper!

Lahontan Reservoir - Silver Springs, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

"That's not a carp, that's not a carp!" - Travis Hawks, NDOW fisheries biologist. Today our fisheries biologists electroshocked Lahontan Reservoir in search of white bass. At first they came across a lot of carp.... but then they found this 17.8 pound wiper. What a giant! Not long after they shocked another 17.4 pound wiper. After measuring them, both fish were safely released! Go catch 'em!
