  1. Is there anyone living in North Dakota that fishes for carp? How about Smallmouth Buffalo?
  2. You can use two rods on most bodies of water in North Dakota, but check lake regulations as some have special rules. You can catch-and-release carp back into the body of water from where you caught them according to the email I received from the main office. However, the regulations state that if the carp is harvested, it cannot be released. According to the email I got back, the rule is aimed at bow anglers because they were shooting carp with arrows and then releasing them back into the water to die. However, you should probably talk with your local game and fish officer or contact the
  3. I contacted the North Dakota DNR and this is what they had to say. You can release carp back into the water (catch and release), but you must take care not to harm the fish and do it right away. You are not permitted to keep the fish and then let it go later or move it to a different venue and then let it go. You must weigh it, photo it, and get it back into the water quickly from where it was caught. The North Dakota DNR does not want dead fish in the water that could cause bacteria growth and reduction of oxygen levels or carp transplanted into lakes where they are not found. The harvest rul
  4. Are there any Carp Fishing Tournaments or carp fishing events near North Dakota in the state or in any of the adjacent states? I live in Minot, ND.
  5. Another thing to keep in mind though is that the North Dakota regulations define common carp and silver carp as None-game Class III Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS), which "can be kept for consumption if legally harvested." but "cannot be released alive back into a waterbody after they have been harvested." So apparently, catch and release carp fishing is illegal in North Dakota. I was fishing the Garrison Dam in ND, with worms and was catching suckers. A game and Fish officer came up to me and asked for my Fishing License. I asked him, "What does Harvest mean for carp fishing/" He said the
  6. I was having trouble finding exact rules for carp fishing in North Dakota. It says there is no chumming unless the bait is attached to the hook. It does not say rather I can use sweet corn or field corn for bait or not. I am living in Minot, ND, and I wonder if anyone has any good carp fishing spots close to me.
  7. Kirt should post on the Calendar... Missouri does not show any events at this time.
  8. Put me on the list, I will be able to make this one. Thanks.
  9. Is anyone hosting any tournaments or fish-ins in Missouri this year?
  10. I am in Illinois, but only an hour from St. Louis. If you guys in MO start having tournaments or Fish-Ins, let me know. Contact me on Facebook as Paul Zucca-Scott.
  11. Yes, it works for any animal, but it does not mean they will not start flopping again or try to get away on you. Some guys say you can pinch the lower lip, but I am more concern about not touching the gills, and supporting the internal organs as best as possible. Really big fish probably should not be lifted at all to be honest because air cannot support the internal organs like water can. Gravity is different for a fish out of water. Also, keeping something soft under the fish while you hold it is a must. Last, be sure not to touch the gills because this can damage them or cause disease. But,
  12. There was always the issue with rowers there. Probably someone complained about the carp anglers' lines being in the way or something.
  13. My phone number is (217) 556-8674.

    Thanks, Paul Scott
