    Connecticut Fish & Wildlife have just announced the following new regulations for the creation of trophy carp waters and limits on the taking of carp from all other state waters.

    COMMON CARP
    There is now a creel limit of 5 common carp per day, with no more than 1 fish greater than 30 inches in length, except in Trophy Carp Waters.

    TROPHY CARP WATERS
    Batterson Park Pond, Connecticut River (including the portions of tributaries open year-round), Squantz Pond and West Thompson Reservoir are designated as Trophy Carp Waters with a one carp per day creel limit and a 26 inch maximum length for Common Carp.

    “This is a true milestone & recognition for the work that the Carp Anglers Group has been doing behind the scenes over many years. I’ll be making another post later to thank those who helped make this possible!”

    How will they be able to commercially fish the Mississippi River? Or would it only be on certain bodies of water?

    Bow fishing is pretty popular in Iowa. That group might have as much to say about this as the carp anglers association. It’s hard to release a fish over 30 inches when it has been stuck with an arrow.

    ^^^ This.

    Lots of bowfisherman and some are pretty well organized. The small number of people that would support carp “regulations” is not even close to the number of bowfishmen and women in Iowa. Not even close.

    I hope they pass laws like that here. Nothing I love more than civil disobedience. Something terrible must have happened to Tedbugle when he was a child. I wonder if he was raised by carp or dropped on his head into lead paint or what.

    That’s not true, I’ve seen thousands of Carps throwed back with an arrow hole in them.

    Yeh, one can do that here in IA, but it’s illegal in MN and WI to throw back a shot carp.

    Some of the poor SOBs survive if they don’t get hit in the vitals and it stops bleeding.
