4-8 quick report and carpocalypse


Recommended Posts

The people that dumped the carp are worthless. Smoke carp are good. I do not kill anything I would not eat.. That's why all fish are releleased that are not 18" walleyes. If the lake is over loaded with them maybe.

The young carp make great food for bass and stripers, try them for bait sometime. You don't get the babies without the adults. If you research carp stocking in the US you will find it was a government

Which part is illegal? Not arguing, just a legitimate question. Is it that they were supposed to dump them somewhere else, or that they dumped them to begin with?

I wish they would just incorporate all fish under wanted waste laws.

Been seeing a lot of carcasses left in the water by the docks and ramps lately and that also gives fishermen a bad name. For god sake take them out in deep water and dump them no reason to leave them where everyone can see them. Only takes one person with the right connections to make life hell on the majority

I don't ever kill carp (except small ones for bait), but I've always been told they were bad for the lake. They take up a lot of oxygen that other fish could use. I'm not sure how true that is. A lot people, like the carp busters, take pride in killing them. I never really had an opinion, other than they're fun on ultra lights, or that they can make a bad summer day fun when nothing else bites.

when i fish i fish to eat. that said why would anyone kill another animal just to do it. Even if you don't like carp i dont think it's right to come in and kill them for no reason. Makes me want to start sticking people with arrows, just to do it.

Let the summer of Carp, begin.

The carp buster guys I assume are the Peoria guys? Different deal if so. Those are invasive Asian carp. We don't have them.

I highly doubt there's any truth to them Taking up oxygen considering they occupy .000001% of the water at any given time.

There are a few people who I think waste oxygen for the rest of us, yet in reality they have very little actual effect.

I can relate personally, but I get the bow fishing deal. And ultimately it's a culling tool for a population that's difficult to manage otherwise. It's not my deal, but I get it.

lol, they are an introduced invasive species.

You guys need to buy your underwear a size bigger.

ETA: The stinking mess is disgusting, I agree. Then again, I see people who are more than happy to live in their own filth every day.

Be honest, how many of you drive a vehicle that is stinking disgusting mess or have a pile of dirty dishes in your sink? Did you all take the trash out before you left home this morning?
