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

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!
    • You guys need to start an HSO drama club..    
    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
