    "ruin our lakes and such"
    Prove it with specifics- place of study, who conducted the study, length of study, results of the study. Let's not deal with generalities. B.A.S. S lists the top 100 bass lakes in the US. It is interesting that the vast majority of them also hold good populations of common carp. Let's not get the common carp confused with silver carp, Bighead carp and Asian carp which are different species than the common carp.
    "Fun to shoot tho. Kill em all"- PETA would have a great time with that statement. This would reinforce their their stereotype of hunters and anglers.

    Actually I love to catch carp. That is just about all I have fished for the last 5 years. How many freshwater fish can weigh over 20 pounds each? My first three "official" carp weighed 34 lbs. even. That's 11.33 average each. I know of fellow carp anglers who catch four carp in a tournament that weigh more than a three day weigh-in at a bass tournament. Odd reason? Carp are a valued fish in Europe, generating $7 billion each year. Bowfishing is illegal in Europe. Europeans who move to the USA can't understand why we kill carp. It seems Europeans get along fine with carp and other fish in their countries.

    Too far to drive. Besides there are plenty of carp here within a few minutes from home.
