But with that said.... if there ever was a place in the DFW area that could use a little Carp thinning out, it would be Joe Pool Lake. To answer your question, yes you can take all the carp you want, using your dip net. No bag or size limit. But if you do net one that is substantially larger than the others, would be great if you could let that one go. Thx.


Actually harvesting any Carp seems to get the Carpers panties in a wad! They want no control over Carp for virtually any reason. Whitney is another lake that needs at least some harvest of Carp but everyone says throw them back! Throw the big ones back but keep the smaller ones, stop contributing to the mess overpopulation of Carp causes (or any fish for that matter). There really does need to be some management of Carp, the bowfishers can't do it all. If you think Carp are such a wonderful fish make some effort to manage them before it has to be done on a massive level. Joe Pool could use some commercial netting of it's Carp population for sure and it wouldn't hurt Whitney either.

Legal to take home as many as you want but I doubt the GW is gonna dig your garden up to see what kind of fertilizer you use.
