Let me re-phrase that. That video was some good stuff. The fact that they're infesting our waterways sucks.

Bad news - The WI DNR is reporting the silver "flying" carp were just discovered in the backwaters near LaCrosse.

Well, we may have to take up bowfishing and whack some of those flying fish. It is pretty sad to see but they have had ample warning with other exotics being caught by the commercial fishermen in years past. Will be interesting to see what it does to the sport fishery as well as the pleasure boating. Sounds like it is pretty bad down in Illinois.

If we are lucky commercial fisherman might be able to make the tiniest dent. I gotta think that almost all fish are going to be impacted negatively, clams..... paddlefish. geez, all the folks on this site could get bows and shoot away, but if they do get infested like in some other parts of the country, all those arrows will make little impact.

It would be great if the suckers couldn't handle the cold winters. If that's the case, that might be our saving grace.

^ They actually PREFER colder waters, so we are actually doomed.

We can definitely kiss the Paddlefish goodbye, and they will take over the major populations of the rivers we all love to fish. I have no problems with Common Carp in the river, but these are the worst. Even more ironic, is that they were brought here in the 70's by commercial Catfish farmers to keep their ponds clean.

need to genetically engineer an asian carp eating machine, like huge northers/muskies. I love boating down the mississippi in mpls, but don't want to be dodging those things
