There was a good 'gill pond a couple of miles from my house and the owner asked me to try to catch some of the carp that got into the pond after a flood went through and went in to the pond. That didn't work so I had to resort to fishing by a bow. The owner used to go there quite often before the flood and was tearing the gills up. Bow fishing seems to be the only option right now. I have been reducing the turtle and carp populations tremendously. I just don't want the bluegills and the catfish that are in there to have stunted growth. Any suggestions on how to catch the carp with a rod & reel?
