What about the guy claiming a 72lb bighead carp ate his fast moving crankbait? #snag
I missed this one. Thanks for posting it. Article said carp can eat 120% of their body weight a day so that beast daily consumption would be about 86 pounds, that's a substantial amount of carp crap deposits per day.

My first thought was snag as well but sounds like some here have had them on jigs.

I caught one (common carp) on a little cleo while salmon fishing and few on jigs and twisters in the rivers.
Watched a video of two guys fishing the Cumberland River, I think, with various baits and contraptions, for Asian carp. They wound up catching at least one in the mouth, on a spoon.
I'd like to catch one, just for the fight they put up!
