I know you blokes love them as coarse fish but they are worse than rats in Oz.
Bloody mongrel carp,you can tell which creek hole has a few as the water is cloudy and murky,whereas other hole`s upstream are clear. They do wreck our water as you know with their mud sucking habits.
Saw a few in the creek yesterday so I went home grabbed the .22 and sneaked along for 11 confirmed kills of fish all around 3 pounds and one 'not sure' so its a only a possible.
A very relaxing evening stroll and as having the sun behind me and from a 6' bank above the water there was an element of stalking for a crack at them...honing up for some larger autumn /winter game soon.
