Default Carp removal

Thought it was interesting to see what they are doing to remove carp from Utah Lake. I'm sure this process costs a fortune.

WOW! Those guys are doing good work. With apologies to carp fiends, I fish them (infrequently) because, like Everest, they are there. But if they were not there, I would be MORE than cool with that.

In the late 90's, I lived in a subdivision in Fort Collins that had a lake. I single-handedly killed and removed what I estimate to be several thousand pounds of carp from a ten acre lake, and it had no discernable effect on the population. Carp are stupid like that.

If I could design a discreet "carp plague" I would be a happy camper.

Hells yeah Utah, cool to see you in the news for something besides polygamy and pedophilia!

Me too.

Jackson and Barr could definitely use a program like this. I'd personally LOVE to see this done on a few ponds in my neck of the woods. If only carp were a little more valuable commercially.

Find a group of eastern europeans and they will be more than happy to take some carp from those lakes.

One of my good friends, his family goes to jackson and barr just to fill their freezers. They swear to me that carp is great eating, but I dunno....

Yeah, I've seen some euro's and asians taking carp. I haven't tried it, but I hear that it tastes a little like pork. One of these days I'll get adventurous and give it a try.
