Re: Something for you fishermen to consider...

I think I have my new tag line...

"You may be having a rough day, but at least you havent been hit by a large Asian carp"

Not as good as the bumper stickers the new england aquarium sold a few years ago. A little picture of a moray eel with the tag "At least you werent eaten today".

That sticker with its highly amusing alternate meaning found its way to many a bumper...

Sure, mount a small flamethrower to the front of the boat and just stand there in the middle of it with your mouth open...

These carp even are high in Omega -3 oils. Can you beat that?

As if adding insult, the carp will leave slime, blood and excrement on everything it touches.
Sounds like a roommate I had in college.

So size matters, but if you can get in and outta there quick with regular gear you're a-ok?

Got it.

Damn Martha, why did you have to bring this up? This is a pretty high bar for us human men to clear.* To be well endowed, sounds like we would need about 4 feet**

I suppose I could fold it...

Four feet would certainly draw a crowd in a nudist colony.

Quid pro quo - so the fish equivalent of hooter's is

I know, a very old thread. But the asian carp continue to make their way up the Mississippi, wreaking havoc.

Invasive Asian carp found in Mississippi north of Iowa border - TwinCities.com

Bighead carp can grow to 100 pounds or more, with silver carp typically a bit smaller. Silver carp, however, leap out of the water when alarmed by the sound and action of engines and propellers and
have injured boaters throughout the central United States.

Heard about this one on the scuba forums:

Florida Diving: Spotted Eagle Ray Kills Keys Tourist

Went to Key Largo last fall (07) & saw several just under the surface while cruising out to the reefs one day - none leaping out of the water though! - the boat Capt said he's seen it though.

Best carp recipe I have ever tried:

Fillet, marinate overnite in soy sauce and garlic, then place on a clear cedar board, cover with onions, garlic, celery and potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste, maybe a dash of liquid smoke. Roast in a slow oven (around 275degrees) for 2-3 hours until cooked thru. Then throw the carp away and eat the board.
