    I know they are in Lafayette. We slay them. My buddy built a platform in the middle of the river last year and shot them with his bow.

    What would happen if a person made up a board with spike nails and had that as a kinda bumper on the front of the boat. Would those jumping carp stick to it :smile2: like velcro. Kinda like a bed of nails. Just get the boat up to about 30 mph and collect carp for the garden. lol:smile2:
