    I’ve been bringing my sons Walmart special Ugly Stick to my local spot to get some of the carp out of there and it’s been a blast! I feel like I’ve been doing more carp fishing then bass fishing there. On 4lb test each fish is a fun 5 min fight. I want them out of there so we’ve been either throwing them up the bank or giving them to the guys there that are carp fishing.

    Very cool you go fishing with the boy.. carp are not the devil you think they are, be careful what you do with them, not all uses/disposal methods are legal

    Carp can be pretty useful, good for cut bait, good fertilizer for the garden, and not bad if you know how to cook them, check out masgouf.

    Just like bass, cull the small ones and release the big ones to spawn. They are an excellent food supply for bass, as your carp-swimbait has shown.
