ALBANY - Carp bounty hunters competed in Albany's 10th annual Labor Day weekend Carp-O-Rama sponsored by the Lake Winnetka/Sugar River Improvement Association Inc. Prizes were awarded for the most carp caught and for the largest carp. The Carp-O-Rama fishing contest is a fun way for people to help the environment by removing as many carp or carp related rough fish as possible from the lake and river. Removing these unwanted fish helps to improve the natural habitat for game fish such as bass or walleye.
