Personally, I opt to bury the beast whole rather then dealing with the smell of cutting them up.
Depends, if you wanna have the most efficient fastest release of nitrogen and other nutrients plants love then you can make fish emulsion.
To make Carp Emulsion
1. Catch a carp
2. Cut up and disembowel Carp
3. Get some leaves/seaweed
4. Get a bucket/barrel
5. Now put equal parts of organic matter (leaves/seaweed) and your cut up carp (guts and all) into bucket until your bucket is 2/3 filled.
Your bucket should now contain 1/3 part Leaves/Seaweed and 1/3 part Carp mixed together
6. Add a little sugar a tablespoon or so to the mix (optional)
7. Pour non-chlorinated water into bucket and fill until all your contents are covered. Do not not fill to the brim. Leave a couple inches of space between th e water and the lid.
8. Seal lid
9. Every day or so remove lid from bucket for a moment to release gases and stir the mix (otherwise it could explode due to pressure.
10. After a month or so your contents in the bucket have rotted.
11. You now have Carp Emulsion full of nitrogen which is great for leafy growth in plants.
12. Seperate the liquid concentrate (what was once water) from the contents in the bucket (optional)
13. When you ready to use your Carp Emulsion of your plants dilute you concentrate in water like cordial and pour on the soil around your plants.

If you cant be f****d doing all that then yeh just bury bits of ur carp under the soil near the roots of your plants. It is no where near as beneficial for the health and growth of your chosen plants as the Carp Emulsion is.

Wow! Yeah probably not doing that, I can't imagine my wife appreciating having that near the house at all, think I will stick to cutting them into bits and burying them.

Headed down to the creek in coolish conditions. The creek had cleared up since last time I was there, so I knew I was in with a chance. I could see them swimming around, so it's just a case of putting the bait out there and waiting. Didn't get a bite straight away, but didn't have to wait long before I got a decent bite, but was unable to hook it. When I inspected my hook, I noticed it was fairly blunt, which is what tends to happen after you catch a few fish! Anyway, with a new hook on it was long before I got another bite and landed a nice 60cm carp. It put up a great fight with much vim and rigour that I was would expect from a fish almost twice its actual size. Carp really are fun to catch and are one of the best sport fishes around, in my opinion. Shortly after that, I landed a nice little Goldfish to the tune of about 30cm. Their sporting prowess isn't quite as appealing, but it was nice to catch something different. It went a bit quiet after that, so I tried a different spot for a bit, but when the cooler weather started rolling in, I decided to pack up and leave.

The problem is that modern carp fishing has become like an arms race. A method and a bait are tried and the carp quickly suss it out and have the upper hand. The anglers think of a new approach and, for a moment, they begin to win. The carp then solve this new problem and they become unconquerable until the next trick is devised and so it goes Ad infinitum. Perhaps in the end, the anglers will just run out of tricks and the carp will eventually reign supreme. I hope so.

Wow CC
That's the first gold fish I've seen that is so "gold", in the wild
Are you sure it doesn't "glow in the dark".

Haven't had much luck down at the creek these past couple of days, so tried somewhere else. No biggies by any stretch of the imagination, but it's always good to get back on the board after a bit if a dry spell...

Not TNA. This place has all the hallmarks of a TNA-like fishery - the carp are there - but I haven't unlocked it's secrets yet...
