That's alright, you wimps can leave them to me.
I look at carp as a gamefish. They get huge, they're spooky and smart, and as psnapp points out, fight like the dickens. Stick a 30+ pounder and you will change your mind. Reminds me of the walleye fisherman out on the Missouri river in South Dakota. Unkown to them, they would stick a smallmouth and have a blast until they could see it. Then they would say "it's just a smallmouth".
I enjoy all the little fishes.
