What's up with the carp?

I have only been fishing the Fox for about 2 weeks now, almost everyday, (mainly for northern, or muskie), and have snagged about 5 or 6 carp, is it always like this? I have done it now at both Ferson creek, and just south of the s. elgin dam.

How is the water aroud S. Elgin, did you see any fish being caught? Is there alot of walleye concentration in this area what about smallmouth? I see that you are out there for muskie/pike have you run in to any recently? Do you use big spinnerbaits? I actually ran into a lot of carp in the St. Charles area fishin for smallies, alot of broken lines. Oh well they are fun to catch on light tackle. Just a few questions, thanks! Tight Lines Y'all!
There is supposed to be some northern on the east side of the river about 1/2 mile, or so south of the dam. Have seen quite a few smallies caught, catfish, and carp, but no northern, or muskie. I have also been fishing Ferson creek, and got a 5.5 pound small mouth yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOW!!! 5.5 lb nice fish that fish had to be around for awhile! Fishing Ferson, Where exactly is that located? I am assuming its where two bodies of water empty into one another. thats really strange we are both from Bartlett as well, hopefully I can get out later tonight as well as tommorrow. Once again GREAT FISH! Hope to see more of that, its a shame you didn't get your northern or ski though. Good luck and tight lines!
Jason - Where? is the photo so we all can enjoy!
Pictures on the way, I am not up to speed with my computer yet.
