Fishing For Carp
How many of you have ever tried to fish for carp? A better question might be, how many of you have ever heard of a carp? If you know what a carp is, and have caught one before, then I would love to hear about it. Give me some good carp stories.
Now for those that have no idea what a carp is, let me try to explain. A carp is a really ugly looking fish that can be found in fresh water lakes and rivers. I’m not sure if carp exist in the ocean, but I know they are in the fresh waters around my house. They like to feed off the bottom of the rivers and lakes. Their mouth has a real unusual shape, and is built for sucking up things. Sometimes they just inhale the bait off your hook, without actually biting down on it. Now carp have a real good purpose. For anybody that has a private lake, then adding a few carp can help to maintain a lake’s beauty. As for the fishermen, they are not so good. A carp to fisherman, is like a possum to coon hunters. There just not exactly what you are looking for.
Now catching carp can be fun. Carp are usually pretty big, and can easily go 5 to 10 pounds when you catch one. If you had very few bites, and wasn’t really catching anything, then catching a big carp can make the whole fishing trip worth it. They will put up a pretty modest fight, and it’s fun trying to get them in. Now some fisherman don’t let the carp go back in the water. They aren’t exactly eating them, because I have heard they don’t taste good, and it’s like eating cardboard. A lot of fisherman will just throw the carps on the bank to die. So even though they don’t taste good, their populations can be held down by fisherman just leaving them to die. Now the bad thing about this, is that if your the next fisherman that has to fish that spot a few days later. That dead carp will leave an awful stink around a fishing area. So in a way, the carp gets to have one last punch back at the fisherman. I really would like to hear any good carp stories you might have.Click here for reuse options!
