What.. giant Carp? "Honey, get my pole, it's gonna be a long weekend!"
Electrified fence? "Honey, get the Net and make room in the freezer!"
Oh darn, now the Asians are even taking over our Fish!
Seriously.. they are going to dump a toxic chemical into a 6 mile stretch of canal? What is the backlash on That!? Seems to me that's a bigger story!
So, what do we really know about these fish? Is the water salt water or brackish? ( brackish is a mixture of fresh and salt water if you don't
Where I live we have a brackish lake that has lots of big fish. Ever see a 4 foot long catfish? Ever see a 50 lbs black drum?
These carp would really have to be huge to make a dent in our fish. What natural predators do they have? Could this be just some government agency
EDIT: I just saw the videos and I can't stop laughing! That little fish is what is causing all this mess? They may seem big to you guys but down
south we call that a fish fry.
Let me tell you.. I don't care how big the fish is.. if you stand in the middle of them jumping around your going to get hurt - that's just dumb.
Small jumping mullets can hurt you if you get in their way. A nice Jack fish can hit you at over 60 miles an hour and rip a hole in your gut.
So you happen to have a lot of slightly larger than average fish jumping around. Teach everyone to use cast nets and declare free open fishing on all
'giant' carp. the problem will be solved in no time.
PRS395, You remind me... Whats the difference between a catfish and a lawyer?
One is a scum sucking bottom dweller and the other's a fish!
