  1. Which is worse? I would vote for shooting the fish with an arrow and throwing it on the bank. That poor fish will die, whereas the hooked & released carp will probably survive just fine. Is there a link to the study referenced? I found a study that's interesting: "Fish cannot feel pain say scientists" https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/9797948/Fish-cannot-feel-pain-say-scientists.html
  2. Some questions/answers re a similar device on Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/SAMSFX-Plastic-Environmental-Release-Fishing/dp/B00XHQTOQA Question: 1how are you supposed to put line thru tube with a swival on one end? Answer: The swivel and tube pull out from the feeder body. Pass your main line through the feeder body, through the tube and then tie the swivel at one end. Pull it all tight and the feeder is set. Tie your hook line to the other eye of the swivel and your done By Customer on July 26, 2017 The swivel detaches. You just have to pull hard enough and it will pop out of the plastic tube.

  3. I use Mr Big's mix in all seasons: 18oz instant Grits (Quaker). 9oz quick Grits (Quaker). 2 table spoons of Kosher salt. 14 3/4 oz Cream style corn ( Green giant ). Never heard of seasonal adjustments to grits pack. But I have heard that different packs work in different seasons.
  4. The Willow Grove site has been good to me too.
  5. I have fished lots of big impoundments in the West. I have always found that a baiting campaign was essential to carpin success. In your case, you might experiment a bit with different particles to find something the perch won't eat. Almost any animal food will probably do for chumming the carp. Stroll down the aisles at any feed store (Tractor Supply, for example) and just buy a few bags of pig pellets, range cubes, or, anything that sinks in water, and try it. A good article to read is "The Baiting Pyramid" by Mike Wison. You can find it here: https://barbel.co.uk/site/articles/baitingpyramid/baitingpyramid.htm Note the following in Washington Sport Fishing Rules: Effective July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017: "It is unlawful to chum, broadcast, feed, or distribute into freshwater any bait or other substance capable of attracting fish unless specifically authorized in Special Rules."

  7. Looks like some convenient bank access right next to one of the ball parks in Charleroi Community Park.
