|A word about Carp.......
Sure they are fun to catch, but they are very
destructive. Carp are omnivores. As
bottom-feeders, carp tend to muddy the water
they live in, decreasing oxygen levels for game
fish, and they wreck spawning beds. While we
have an abundance of largemouth bass, our
smallmouth bass populations is really hurting
according the report from the Illinois DNR (see
Shocking page). We have WAY too many carp in
our lake and the population has to be reduced!
