    Asian Silver Carp...

    We had a video like that at Sportsman's that people never got tired of.

    People kept asking what kind of fish they were. All I knew was that they were Asian Silver Carp. I did a little research on them. Brought in illegaly by fish collectors and most likely introduced at one of the many times the Mississippi flooded. They are one of the most successful invasive species at reproducing at an alarming rate. The destruction from these fish seems to have no end. They are a serious problem. Good for the boys who are willing to shoot em, but I'm afraid it isn't enough.

    I just don't get it.... Why would anyone in their right mind want a dead stinkin *** carp anywhere near them. Personal opinion here but I think i would rather stub my toe.

    Matt Correct in Idaho Cats are game fish... but in lots of states in the south Cats are legal to Bow fish for...

    in Idaho you can bow fish for Non-Game fish and you do have to have a license and do not need to have a Archery Permit. and you can Bow fish on bodies of water that sport fishing is open... but if that water way is closed to fishing then you can not Bow fish but heck the snake is so full of Non Game Fish I can't understand why one would have to try other areas Maybe the Lake... its nice and full of carp during the hot summer months...

    Matt a few of us are going out Sat to try to stick some wanna bring the boat and show us how its done...? give me a call :tu
