    1. Keep taking those grass carp out Kaitlin! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
      Lots of carp at Harris now. Very concerned with bass populations dwindling due to destruction of vegetation by these carp. Kill them all Kaitlin.

      There are so many stories running around about these carp. Either way they have destroyed Shaeron Harris in the past 2 years for being the bass habitat it use to ...more be. I could catch 5 bass on any given day, all ranging from 3-5lbs. Now I am lucky to catch a 3-5lb bass at all. Itโ€™s sad thet duke and NCW has let this go, and their answer has been setting up fish habitats in lieu of killing all the hydrila. They also said these carp are sterile, however Iโ€™ve seen them rummaging through the weeds during their spawn. They also live in excess of 20+ years so it will be a while, if ever, when Shaeron Harris returns to the way it was.

      Kill em all Kait...only good carp is a dead
    9. Mike, these guys are no good! Duke Energy stocked 10,000 of them in this tiny reservoir with the sole purpose of removing hydrilla that was supposedly clogging their ...more intake, but now theyโ€™ve removed every shred of native aquatic vegetation as well. Without the aquatic plants to filter sediment from runoff at the shorelines, water quality has taken a nosedive. Those weed beds also provided incredible cover for bass, shad, and other native fish. The shallow water fishery used to be second-to-none on Shearon Harris, now itโ€™s a thing of the past.
