A Shoreham angler took a new state record carp on May 20 from the Vermont waters of Lake Champlain. Darren Ouelette was bow-fishing for carp with Taylor Patterson in a backwater area of southern Lake Champlain when Darren spotted a very large carp cruising just below the surface in some flooded trees.
Although common carp have been naturalized in many waters throughout the country since the early 1800’s, fishing for them gained little attention from North American anglers until recently. Carp-specific fishing magazines, clubs, television shows and internet forums are starting to pop up throughout the U.S. And according to Good, Lake Champlain is ripe to provide those challenges to keen anglers who learn about productive carp fishing techniques.
Carp are incredibly strong and powerful fish, and when hooked, can make long, powerful runs.
Good also points out that the “common carp,” which has long been established in North American waters, including Lake Champlain since 1883, is a different species than the invasive Asian carp that has recently been in the news. The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department has maintained the record fish program since 1969 to help monitor productivity of fisheries throughout the state and also to give anglers recognition for their exceptional catches.
Ouellette’s carp now stands as the single heaviest fish ever entered into the program, of any species, in the 45 years of the program’s existence. ROCKINGHAM, VT-It was a beautiful spring day in Rockingham on Sunday for the 12th Herrick's Cove Wildlife Festival, an annual event held on the first Sunday each May, which celebrates both spring time in New England and wildlife. The popular festival included various naturepresentations, programs and activities featuring live animals, birding, guided nature walks, crafts, workshops, food, venders and more. The event now brings togetherdozens of outdoor, wildlife, environmental and conservation groups from all over New England and beyond. Other presenters included Vermont Institute for Natural Science, Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, The International Wolf Center, Brian Ellis-storyteller and more. The event was co-sponsored by the Nature Museum, Ascutney Mountain Audubon Society and Vermont Fish and Wildlife. Sharon Cantwell is grateful that, at least, the conversations about wildlife are continuing."They're happening and I think that is important," she said.
An ever-expanding library of articles and videos on how, where and when to catch all of New England's top sport and food fish. The latest and greatest new boat releases from manufacturers large and small, as well as a look at some classic models from years past. What's hot in nautical clothing, gear, books, home furnishings, fishing tackle, electronics and more.
Contains short videos on every imaginable subject related to New England's aquatic resources, from fishing to history, kayaking to engine maintenance.
Shane Felch of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, has taken a carp from Lake Quinsigamond weighing 46 pounds, 5 ounces, breaking the 1993 state carp record of 44 pounds, 2 ounces set by Roger Pyzocha with a fish taken on the Connecticut River.

This kind of announcement over the PA system at the MassWildlife Field Headquarters isn’t unusual. Shane and Devon have only tried “bowfishing” for carp in the past year: reading articles, ordering equipment, and going out on late night fishing expeditions. The angler, Shane Felch of Shrewsbury, and his friend Devon DuBois were grinning from ear to ear.
Shane took his fish with a crossbow (which requires a special permit for hunting and fishing in Massachusetts). Paperwork for entering the fish in the Freshwater Sportfishing Awards Program was quickly completed and images of the fish and the scale measurement taken. Drawing quickly and taking aim, Darren arrowed the 44-pound 6-ounce giant, and then fought for over 20 minutes to land it on his fishing-modified compound bow. That fish was taken by bow-angler Jeremy Ballantine in May 2013 on the Connecticut River and weighed 42-pounds 8-ounces.
He says non-native common carp do not pose the same threats to aquatic ecosystems and human safety that Asian carp do. A database of Vermont record fish entries is searchable by species, body of water and year of catch. The Wildlife Encounters, a traveling wildlife program of the Granate State Zoo, presented the entire day, with a diverse collection of live animals from many continents around the world.
Partial funding was also provided by TransCanada, HB Plumbing and Heating, Ben & Jerry's Homemade, Luzenac America, Vermont Country Store and Eagle Optics. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources shot the animal after it killed a dog sparking a large response from the community about living with wildlife. Cantwell is a Pinebrook resident and member of the grassroots organization Save People Save Wildlife.
Wildlife authorities attribute the mortalities to the endangered animal's growing population. Each destination section contains detailed information on navigation, marinas, public dockage, Harbormaster contacts, fuel docks, anchorages, launch ramps, fishing options, service and repair.
From tuna to scup, the Fishing section contains valuable, updated information on rigs, lures, baits, hot spots, and techniques.
Whether you want to be entertained or informed, or both, you'll find something of interest in the video library. I didn’t pay much attention until one of our wildlife technicians appeared at my door saying that I might want to see a new record-breaking fish in the fisheries office. I snapped a couple of images in the office as more biologists clattered down the hall to see the big fish.

Carp are one of the few freshwater fish in Massachusetts that can be taken by either using a hook, line or bow and arrow. Their strategy is to slowly travel the shallows of the lake, with lights blazing to spot the fish, aim and shoot into the water. The leather is believed to be the most uncommon variety in the Commonwealth, but many are taken by carp anglers every year.
Before that he served as the editor of Northeast Boating from 2005 to 2009, and as managing editor of Salt Water Sportsman magazine from 1995 to 2004. The organization advocates for the safety of wildlife and is especially dedicated to promoting the installation of wildlife fencing along Interstate 80. You'll also find videos, links and info on places to shop, dine, and local points of interest. Get the scoop on recent search-and-rescue ops, marina news, dredging, boating and fishing events, weather alerts, fishing reports, and anything else that happens along the coast.
It's also where you can learn about recent noteworthy catches, watch entertaining fishing videos and find links to state regulations and license information. This carp, taken from Lake Quinsigamond in Shrewsbury, weighed a staggering 46 pounds, 5 ounces, breaking the 1993 state carp record of 44 pounds, 2 ounces set by Roger Pyzocha with a fish he caught on the Connecticut River.
I teased them about “jack lighting carp” – which is a perfectly legal and traditional fishing technique.
The new state record has large, scattered scales and is therefore a mirror carp, which anglers report is the most common variety caught from Lake Quinsigamond.
In January, Cantwell was one of about 150 people who attended a wildlife open house hosted by the Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR), Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Wild Aware Utah. Nearly 130 attendees submitted comments at the open house about decreasing mortality rates, relocating moose and elk, and the need for more education about living with the wildlife, among other issues.
In response to the comments, DWR officials have since developed a course of action, which includes establishing educational programs in the area.
Darrell Land of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the state's panther population is estimated at up to 180 animals, compared with a few dozen 30 years ago. By combining historical methods with cutting edge research and the most current successful management policies, Farming for Wildlife fulfills a niche that has not been addressed by traditional outdoor magazines.
