"Big fish, big bucks and big fun — what's not to like about an outing at a carp fishing pay lake?" For me, there's plenty not to like. These fish have to come from somewhere, and removing the largest ones available from public waters to run a private gambling racket is not very consistent with the idea of carp being promoted as the "World's Greatest Sportfish". The mortality rate caused by over stocking these tiny lakes only leads to more over stocking...a never ending cycle. As wild water carp angling gains popularity, the destruction of the quality of the fishing caused by the commercial fishing feeding these pay lakes is going to become a major problem eventually in some places. And I think it's wrong and seriously needs to be regulated.
