  :'(   It always amuses me what the powers that be classify as "invasive" verse legit gamefish. The list of actual invasives (non-native fish) is a very, very long one.

I've strolled around the pond the last couple of days looking for tailers, I had few opportunities, and the carp weren't cooperative.
A kid was spin fishing for bass and bream and had caught a couple, he was fascinated by my tails of catching carp, he had hooked one but couldn't bring it in.

I walked across the dam, aa nice fat northern banded water snake slithered out of my way. I fished the far side and then returned only to see the snake again. The kid asked if I had seen a snake and I told him twice, and he said he had seen it earlier.

I was fishing the near shore and the kid had worked his way around the pond to the far side when I heard a woman talking on her phone, apparently communicating with her son who was fishing, and I heard her indicate that she would come across the dam to him. I thought about the snake and thought to myself, "this will be good" I watched the mom start across the dam and then head a loud shriek as she scurried back. When she came close, I asked, "Didn't your son warn you about the snake?"

"Oh, no he didn't, they don't bother him" she replied. 

anyway, no carp were caught that day...

Today I had one decent shot, but carp was blocked by a small bass.

The horror! All carp should be handled delicately with pre-moistened hands and quickly released without ever being lifted from the water.
