MORRIS, Ill. - Prepare to be amazed by a story revolving around an enormous fish.
The Illinois River Biological Station recently shared an astonishing catch, weighing in at a whopping 105 pounds.
The crews that netted the fish have been working to combat invasive carp populations in the upper Illinois River. Earlier this week, they successfully reeled in a colossal specimen near Morris.
With this capture, the massive carp will no longer pose a threat to native fish and mussels.
Remarkably, this catch occurred just a day after the same crew landed another gigantic carp in the same location.
