Holy carp

Patrick Johnson has a great fish story — and it's true.

The Toledo man didn't want anybody to doubt that he shot a record-size common carp while bow fishing in Sandusky Bay, so he made a video and posted it on YouTube when the fish was officially weighed.

Johnson, 37, who works for the City of Toledo's water department, set an official record when he shot the 53.65-pound common carp on June 9 in Sandusky Bay on the Sandusky County shoreline. His new record breaks a previous record of 47.65 pounds for a carp also shot in Sandusky Bay.
