    Carp aren’t hideous! They provide most of my recreation! �

    To each their own. I cant deny they are one of the hardest fighters. I just find them to be the *censored*roaches of fresh water.

    I utilize them to the max.

    I catch them on a hook and line, bowfish for them, and spearfish (mask, fins and snorkel) the mighty carp in clear lakes.

    In one day I got carp all three ways – the Carp Trifecta!

    I’m glad there’s these big giant fish available in most waters of the midwest with no restrictions or limits on how or when you take them.

    At the same time I understand the damage they do and have done, but what the heck, ain’t no way to get rid of them and I do my best (even though I do C&R when angling- I like to come back and try and catch or shoot them again).

    I’ve been nailing the carp at Waterworks park. They are right next to the shoreline. You can hear the sucking noise when they rise out of the water. Here is a mirror carp I shot out there!

    Took a trip around Ills today and definitely moving into shallows, but saw no active spawners.

    Was out at blue herring park just off of grand Sunday afternoon. Saw 1 30in.+ gar, and several carp. Water temp was as high as 86.
