I recently caught a huge carp at LM, so my question is next time i do catch a carp at LM, Busse, Fox River, etc... what do i do with it, do i just catch and release since i dont ever eat'em or do i just kill'em and leave it there to rot?

Some smaller lakes have a no release rule, but for LM, Busse, Fox.... and the rest of the large powerhouse lakes no one cares. At busse I do toss em ashore to die, if you wait long enough someone will come by and ask you if they can have it. I tend to not do that when people are watching me cuz thats a great way to get some odd looks.

Oh if you really don't want them to live, throw them far!!!! They are good at getting back in the waters and a big carp in the shade can live for well over and hour.
