    I was fishing this past weekend using skipjack on the Ohio River. I cut one up and a baby asian carp came of it!!:eek:oooh: Needless to say, I am EXTREMELY pleased to see that something is feeding on the dang things!!:big_smile::smile2:. Anyway, just passing on the observation.

    Wow, thats pretty cool. I had no idea! Maybe the DNR should start an offensive agains the asians and try over stocking the skippys. I would rather have too skippys than too many asians :)
