C'mon man, you know you've hooked many a carp out of the Chicago River
I dont think anything could live in the Chicago River..lol
Ya, Ive caught them in ponds before, nasty looking things!
BTW, Asian carp DNA was found in water sample of Chicago river (no sighting of the fish tho, they say)
Ive heard a report that one was found in Lake Erie, not sure if its true but I hope not.
and now 'authorities' in charge of these matters are panicking and proposing closing off some important waterway??
The state of Minnesota and Michigan are trying to get an injunction to close down the Illinois shipping canal.
I don't see how though, carp aren't really predators
Its coz theyll eat everything, the whole food chain is in jeopardy!
We have electric barriers that kill the fish but when it floods all that extra water gets released into Lake Michigan.
Im for saving the Great Lakes before a shipping canal, they will just have to truck stuff into Chicago, Not that its really going to matter because the Illinois river has tributaties that run through Indiana and eventually into the lake.
Hillbillies in Arkansas brought them in
Yep dumb rednecks trying to think again
They will reduce the food available to indigenous species
And our beautiful lakes will be ruined:(
The Canadians should be very worried about the carp getting into thier waters also, once they make it into the Great Lakes theyll spread all throughout Ontario and Quebec
