If that's what I think it is, a carp, they do get that big.

Its definatley not a carp. Carp are predominantly bottom feeders and all species have downturned mouths (except grass carp, and they are elongated and dont grow much above 30 pounds) it looks like a mahseer, though its scales should be silver and larger. So it probably isnt.

I can't find the original article that I took the photo from. But I'm pretty sure they called it a Grass carp.

No. If they called it a grass carp they have their facts wrong.
