Asian carp tourney Snaggers are on the Illinois River today for Presley's Outdoors' first Asian carp snagging tournament and perhaps the first such event in the United States. Totals at Mendenhall Boat Ramp could be impressive. Bowfishers and snaggers agree the average size of Asian carp this year is up. "The standard fish is 4 pounds heavier," said Chris Brackett of Bartonville. "And we're getting nailed so much it's ridiculous. I'm going to start wearing a cup out there." Finally, there may even be a new carp sport on the horizon. Chad Snyder of Presley's said he saw one group of boaters wielding baseball bats in hopes of whacking a few carp.
