    You don't get off that easy Ken . ! :wink: I'll be baiting your hook . Bait one for me ! I should catch some fish there if the asian carp don't knock me over the rail . They were dangerous last time down . I brought back a chunk of one last time that about hit me . Maybe I will get some more this time !

    Take you a baseball bat with you and slap catfish bait out of them A. C.:wink::smile2: that should solve some of the problem.

    Ken no joke in an hour or so of catching shad and a little rod and reeling there were close to a dozen flapping on the rocks . Plus 4 people were trying to shoot them in the air with bows and they killed a few . When the locked boats thru the other side of the dam and pumped the water down in the lock you would see I bet a 100 @ atime jumping in the current

    Lance you be careful and good luck! Don't get knocked in the water by them Asian carp! Try and bring some back, they should make good cut bait!

    Correct that is the MAIN REASON they need to be exterminated no real predators once they get of any size I bet the ones I saw down there jumping would have been at least 15lbs. on average ! Actually the eat plankton which feeds ALL species of fresh hatched fish no food left for the fry ! Freshwater Whales

    Maybe everyone that likes to fish all need to gather down by the river for some Suday evening trap shooting and use Asian Carp as clay pigeons :wink: Think that would help some ???
