    Anyone used these creatures as bait yet? The James River in South Dakota is filled with these babies and I would love to try these fish out for dem big flatheads. My local DNR guy gave his archpastoral fishing blessing for anyone to use them as bait to try to control the uncontrollable population that is growing....and growing....and growing.....

    I think a size 17/0 circle should do the trick. I'm gonna paint it red, dip it in a gloss that glows in the dark, inspect the results in a few days and head for their lairs...

    Dorsal fin hooking them.

    The bulldog is ready. I've already trained him to catch dem asians when they come flyin' in the boat. Should be fun. He gently places them in the aeriated coolers and proceeds to get ready for the next one.

    I need to film this. Yes, this type of action is too much to contain by mere words.

    Will borrow my brother's camcorder and transfer it to MP3 for you all to see.

    Take care,
