The carp just seem to go nuts in every lake around this time of year. I'm guessing that they're spawning or something of the sort?? I tried fishing for them once last year and had no luck, but I saw a guy pull in tons of them using a giant snagging treble hook.

Not sure if this is legal? But I know it's always good to get rid of some of the carp in these overpopulated lakes. :?

Exactly. Though is doesn't matter so much when it comes to carp. I've seen people catch huge carp at Lake Glenview with pieces of bread on an old rusty hook and a Zebco 202!

FYI:
if you do catch one, don't release them back into the water at the glen. toss him in the trash but please be humane about it by scrambling the brains so that they don't suffer any more than they have to.

I prefer the gill rip which is kind of like starting a lawn mower. Would you consider that humane Augy??? :D

watched this guy on tv not sure if I got the name right. Tred Bartha or something... he uses a baseball bat or something like a club and hits his catch on the head. I think it's being humane in a brutal way :? :? :twisted:
