The biggest carp we have ever heard of in this section was captured last Monday below Shepherdstown, near Flanagan’s quarries, by Mr. A. M. Hopper and his sons. The fish had gone into a shallow place, presumably to spawn, when Mr. Hopper saw it and with the assistance of his boys finally got it ashore. They weighed it, and it tipped the scales of 45 1/2 pounds, breaking the record for big carp in the Potomac, so far we have heard. The fish was killed, but its captors did not eat it. It contained about a-half bushel of roe, more or less.
