    One old fart posted at the muzzy last year that bowfishermen were nothing but "renegade poachers shooting sleeping fish". Stupid people with their fish have feelings crap. I do it cause its fun just like everyone else but that proves that it does have a purpose.

    First off I love bowfishing & everything about the sport but what is the proof that carp did this to the lake? What if one lake allows boats and jet skis and the other doesn't?

    It got to do with how they feed.
    They suck up mud looking for something to eat in that mud.
    That all so keep weeds from growing.

    speaking of madison.....this is off topic....but here goes.

    years ago, i was spending the summer with my grandpa. we were fishing cherokee marsh. i had caught two catfish, and then i had anther fish on that i managed to get to the side of the boat. it was some type of gar, but it had fins that were very similar to a picture someone posted of a huge "butterfly" coy/carp. i've never seen anything like it before or since, and my grandpa was floored as well. being a gar, it wasnt hooked real well and the hook came undone before we could net it.

    i've searched high and low, and never seen or heard about anything like it. anyone out there ever heard of such a thing?

    and all fins, pectoral, dorsal, and anal fins were very long and flowing; just like on that butterfly carp but only on a gar.

    i was too young back then. but i've always wondered what the heck it was. if i remember correctly, it was a very pale color as well. the only other witness to it is dead now.

    cool tid bit of info from the study

    Carp radio-telemetry study:

    In the fall of 2005, local fish managers implanted radio-transmitters in 14 carp captured from Lake Wingra; following fish recovery NTL-LTER conducted the radio-tracking for 2 years. Results of that study indicated that carp spend most of the open water season in relatively shallow water around the perimeter of the lake with many carp exhibiting fidelity to the same location. One important finding, however, was that in mid-November immediately prior to the lake freezing over, all carp migrated to the deeper, center region of the lake (~3.0-3.5 m) where they remained during most of the winter. This was the perfect location for winter commercial seining to reduce carp densities.

    Looks like an easy comparison is,

    Carp are the Feral Hogs of our lakes and streams

    Great pics and interesting thread
