I need to go out and get a few carp this week. Does anyone have any recommendations for where to get a few? I have a bow, a boat, a rod, and a spear.

I know an old honey hole from college but it's been 10 years since I hit it so I don't know if it's going to be productive.

Northern Utah, if possible.

I'll drive by the fields of cutler tonight- if any (which I doubt) are flooded- I suggest a 7 iron - possibly a 5 if you need a tinch more length.

Anything more specific than UL? Obviously I don't want anyone to post their secret spots for carp, if anyone has secret spots for carp.

And no golf clubs packfish. Although I do have a pretty nice gaff hook. ;-)

I know a spot in Wyoming, you can get about 20-40 in the next week - before the ponds dry up leaving the birds to the remains.

Also, the Willard Spur would be a good place to bow fish on a boat.

I'm in SLC but I can travel if there are some easy carp to find.

I need as many as I can get. 50-100, depending on size.

Blacks Fork River by Flaming Gorge, So about 3 hours from SLC.

50-100 would be quite a chore. Some of the ones are around 20 lbs, in this little spot.

Just curious, but why do you need so many? are you fertilizing a garden or something?

Years ago I worked at a custom cutting shop(beef,pork,wild game ,etc.)We cut frozen cod and halibut(whole fish)for a fish company.Well I took a bunch of the bone dust(collects in the saw) and put on my roses.2 days later I had every cat and whatever in the neighbor hood in my yard,and I buried the stuff 6 inches deep.Was not a pretty site.-O,-

Launch from AF Harbor, head east. There's the **** plant just barely east of the harbor, has the creek feeding into the lake. Continue further east and there are a few other creeks feeding into it. They are generally all chuck full of carp.
