Carp fishing thread. Post anything Carpy and we can discuss. I'm a British carp angler by the way. Picture is my set up.
Aussie fisher here. Carp are fucking pests, only place they belong is on a rock, dying.
Locally, they've destroyed all the cod habitat, and pretty much killed off wild trout. Fucking little cunts they are..
when i see carp i sharpen a stick
and toss them into the bushes
nasty fucks that muddy the water, taste like battery acid, and kill off all the other fish
it's illegal in my state to to not kill a carp after hooking it
Not by my knowledge. I've fishing in NSW, QLD, NT and VIC (no South Australia or Western Australia yet) and have had no issie with wardens seeing a pile of carp, most say 'thanks'.
Here is the NSW list of fish, and their limits.
Carp is classified under 'Non native fin fish species (excluding trout & salmon)', which no limits.
This is a poster from a few months ago about a carp competition. Largest weight in got $5000. There was another one I can't find a poster for, but they offer $5/kg up to 10kg, then $2/kg after.
