Jun 08, 2005 — British carp fishermen Tim Paisley and Steve Briggs are lapping the competition at the World Carp Championship on the St. Lawrence River. They've hauled in more than 1000 pounds of carp, triple their next closest challengers. No one's caught the million dollar record-breaking carp yet, though. An American, Ed Gilstrap, has caught the biggest so far at 38 pounds, 14 ounces. David Sommerstein was on the shoreline earlier this week to sample the sporting and economic dimensions of carp fishing.
