Knew we had some carp in pond but... WOW!..
Blimey that's no tiddler, and the fish is big too.
Yup, that's the young-un.....
In England, a pond big enough for that is called a lake!
Oh no ,it's a very small spit of water, only a few hundred acres I'd imagine.
going to need a big bag of chips to go with that
If that lake and fish was in the UK you would be sitting on a gold mine
So. An inland sea then?
wow,but all its good for in to make the veggies,grow better,
Over here moni carp fishng is big money people would pay a lot of money. For a chance of catching that size of fish
just go,s to show you the different between,hear and there,as hear they a pest fish,
and that the main use of them,turned in to fertilizer
if you catch and release them you do get fined,for it,
You are correct Monica, carp are not exactly a good eating fish, very oily, boney and earthy but the
Asians love them for soup We catch them all the time and release them because our pond - er - lake is only three or four meters at it's deepest but spread out over a large area.
The work of a couple of beaver clans who dammed up the creek a hundred yeas ago which created a beautiful lake / marshland with tons of wildlife including snapping turtles over a hundred pounds The carp are welcome because they graze like cattle and keep waterways from clogging with vegetation we catch them using a few kernels of canned corn on small hooks and stout tackle. Average weight 20 t0 30 pounds but this one was well over 50. My boy chopped it into giant steaks and swears he's gonna give it a go over the fire
we eat milkfish,that's a bit like a carp,muddy in taste ,but that's as far as it go,s for me,
and with,that monster your son,has,oh my ,he would like to odd carp or so,I would think,
hope you don,t eat them,as its cool looking thing,
They're a 'delicacy' in some European countries, but I've never found them very tasty.
Not a turtle soup fan but many do love them Tastes sort of like fishy chicken...Not my cuppa tea.
Love venison, can make any cut taste like fillet mignon, but anyway hate to boast but we get some kinda big catfish also beside sizable bass and pike and they are good eating
Youngest is an avid fisherman and hunter
the old man can't keep up anymore........Jim
oh wow,you have a lake of monster fish,and critters,
Pike can get rather large also, seasons don't stop the fishing, we pull them right through the ice...BRRRR!
oh my never seen a pike,,anywhere near that size, and yes looks very ,very ,BRRRRRRRR,
