Default carp

What's the best way to get the maximum amount of carp in the minimum amount of time?

Fish for trout.

Sorry 10thumbs. I couldn't resist. I actually have no idea.

In the local rivers, all it takes is to get the boat up on plane and they jump right out of the water, an interesting sight -if you're not skiing.

I just watched a local documentary about carp..
On the frozen lake, they cut a pickup truck size hole..
Drill about 1' diameter holes in a big circle with the truck size hole on one side..
Use a small submersible to thread a rope around the circle of holes..
String a big net on the rope.. Pull the rope up tight catching the fish..
Sort out the game fish back to the lake as they pull up the net..
Dip the carp out of the net with a backhoe with a 5' diameter dip net on it...
They caught about 10 cubic yards or more of carp/rough fish from this lake in a day.. Almost 10 tons of rough fish I think it was..

Not sure what they did with them.. But I think some of it was ground and mixed in a potting soil type mix ??

Good luck..

Smelly bait, treble hooks, and a lake that isn't very clear ......

Best thing about carp, wonderful for making fish emulsion for the garden ...

..Oh .. one other thing, I live close to a river ... take the boat out after a light rain, pluck them out of the river with a bow.

On the river, there are pods of carp coming up to the surface after a light rain. Pick them off and have a lot of fun doing it.

Yeah. Fish harvest. When it comes to carp, nobody cares about minimum size or quantity. And they might not even mind a guy using dynamite, since its all for a good cause.
