    Here is a 44" grass carp taken from my pond. Killed with a crossbow. He thrashed around something fierce and he was pretty tore up once I got him in for good.


    OOps, file too large, can't upload it, sorry!
     
  2. Why did you use the cross bow and kill him? Grass carp are good for your pound.

    When grass carp get that large their metabolism slows way down and they eat just enough to stay alive, so they stop being "good" for my pond. Another reason is that it is way overstocked with grass carp and the bigger ones will go first due to the reasoning above. So, hope that sums it up for ya.

    lg_mouth is correct about that. If you have amurs as a weed control in ponds, once they get that large, they are just taking up space, especially if that's what you have them in there for the first place. Removal and replacing them with small ones is the only thig you can do........ THE CATKING
