i dont think its possible to poach a carp considering you dont even need to have a liscense to target them. they fight like hell and can be impossibly tight lipped and spooky at times. they were great all summer but im glad to have the anadromous fish back. wading around green lake and getting drilled by socks and sandals wearing housewives got a little old. "yes im really fishing green lake." "they are carp." "no really im fishing for carp."
