Ok, most of us don't know silver carp... thank god. (if there is one) Silver carp are large alge eating fish that live in temperate waters. They are some times call snake head and are about the wroste invasive fish in the world. They eat plankton or alge and are salmon sized. They jump at a boat wake. They are the pest that could kill salmon - all salmon.
In Illinion there are electic traps for them. The US is despartely trying to keep them out of the great lakes.
Crazy is that a group of hunters like to bow hunt them as when water is disturb they jump and they put an arrow shaft through the cacht. There is nothing wrong with that. But the fish is the nuclaer bomb of fish. We must not ever allow it around here.
And here is easly one of it's homes if Illinion is.
Look the silver carp up or the snake head.
Have fun, Jason

somebody did post about this but just with a couple links to youtube videos of those guys bow fishing :happy: looked like alot of fun. definately not a fish we want ANYWHERE in our country. hopefully they can continue to keep them out. only problem is they ONLY have an electric fence blocking them from getting through, if that fence ever gets torn open or loses power they will get by quickly :wallbash: and they have already seen them as far as the fence just not tons yet.

I watched a documentary on TV a while back about these fish and the bow and arrow fishing for them, they showed the machine they put in the water to send an electrical shock and within seconds hundreds of these fish would jump all over the place, they would jump in boats going by,jumping on shore, its just crazy to see, there is also short videos on youtube about them... Its very intresting
