Carp get a bad name in most of the US. This video sheds some light on why carp might be worth a fishing trip.
I grew up thinking carp were a “trash fish.” I knew they fought hard but they weren’t worth eating. They’re bottom feeders… or are they? Watch the video below and make your own conclusions.
So sounds like carp aren’t that bad after all. I love bass fishing, so if carp are good for bass, then they are all right with me. Well, as long as they are not of the invasive species.
Carp do a lot for their environment, so much that they were originally imported. I’m not sure the carp in my local lakes are making the water turbid but they are helping the bass and crappie. Hopefully, this video has cleared a few things up for you, it did for me. I’m not going to quit bow fishing, but I’m not going to think of carp as a nuisance.
Nor am I going to put one in my bathtub.
