Rough fish removal a good thing? NOT SO FAST

I fish for carp specifically several times a year AND I throw at every one I see while bass or crappie fishing hoping to get lucky 

      I also throw at them when fly fishing for some fun and a change of pace.

Lucky?  You're bass fishing....hoping to get lucky and catch a Carp.  

WTF right now?  🤔

          Yep lucky for another fight. A bonus but still for what they do as an invasive I could do without them.

I get it, I'm just seeing whose hackles I can raise today.  It's either that, work on a 4-stroke Merc that won't push itself on a trailer, or mow the yard.    Fishing today is out of the question for some stupid reason that only makes sense to a female who is reorganizing closets today.  🙄

Pop that speedo on and prance around the house.  Maybe you'll get lucky:lol:

But even they will chase a streamer.

Carp don't bother me. I'm just sick and tired of hearing about how popular it is but I never see anybody doing it. Oh sure google boy can throw up some crap he found online, careful not to get those mixed up with the over harvest pics. But there are very few around here doing it like he claims. Just keeps spewing all the info he can and copying and pasting it here. Sad that a life is wasted doing this. 

Flysmallie...Perhaps Ill invite you to a fishing "social" and you can ask whats wrong with all those  people who drove 8 hours just to fish euro-style...

as far as not seeing people who do this kind of fishing, how many muskie fishermen do you see?

nothing wrong with changing hearts and minds about how fun it is to fish for carp... as well as teach the reality that common carp are not the bugaboo they are scape goated to be, interesting that it offends you the promotion of carp fishing or what I do with my time,

I enjoy many things... wade fishing ozark creeks and streams, looking for arrowheads and Ice age fossils, exploring new biomes for new and interesting plants I have never seen...

as my fishing opportunities expand, your's won't be diminished by euro-style carpers unless your thing is filling trash bins with dead fish with holes in them.

If you are tired of reading my drivel, don't...to give me grief about it just makes me dig in my heals and try harder, at least I make you think...If I died tomorrow, I will have lived a full and interesting life.....cheers;)

It is somewhat like some websites that constantly posts #CONTENT in a shotgun method to generate clicks/page-views...without actually being the one that gets to keep the ad money.

You seem like a good guy, MoCarp, and knowledgeable, but it would be okay if you posted more original content from your own experiences on the water, in the woods, etc, and less pictures of what others are doing. I think most would find that more interesting.

Your choice entirely and none of my business though. All the best 

I almost never 'share" my spots anymore....lest they get shot up.....but I get closet carpers contacting me all the time about going and learning, one of the reasons I post such things...many of the things I post ARE my writing and content, research etc.....I may post a few interesting events I have planned for the fall...should be interesting

Biggest mistake i ever made, taking someones advice the said they are good eating.  Bled all over me and the boat, dulled a knife, made my wet suit smell like crap.  But i guess it made for a good photo.   Never again for me!!!

Thats a buffalo, Ms Pauls fish sticks used to be made out of buffs caught commercially in the Mississippi, like most fish about 5-6 pounds would be better eating, I never liked cleaning fish, and giving them away just takes one more fish someone else would have the fun in catching... ...had a guy make me buff fish sticks once at a fishing social, they tasted great, he said rubbing down the slime off a buff before you cleaned it is the trick....

Having grown up fishing for carp on rod and reel, trotline for carp with cotton seed cake, pressure cooking and canning them.I don't have any problem with anyone who wants to fish for, bow fish for, catch, eat etc. carp.  I am curious as to where these "socials" are held that none of us have seen the these crowd of people are congregating to catch carp.  Personally I would rather sit on my butt and catch carp than I would catch channel cat, but I may well not be normal.  I am certainly not going to invest in many dollars worth of carp special gear, but should the desire and opportunity to catch a carp or 10 close to home arrive at the same time I might partake with no second thoughts.  What you do or promote makes me no difference I will cogitate upon some of it, and laugh and move on at other things.

No thanks. I can go to a tournament at any lake any weekend and see more dedicated people than that.

As far as how many people have I seen musky fishing? Well musky are pretty rare in Missouri with only a few lakes having them so that's not really fair. But I would say that I have seen more than a couple dozen people fishing for musky since the beginning of the year and still zero carp fisherman. Oh and the musky fisherman didn't need a social. They were out there on some of the most miserable days looking for that one bite from a true predator. Days that make guys like you retreat to their parents basement. Nice try though.
