What's the deal with these Asian Carp?
Five Feet Long !!! 100+ pounds?
If they could be contained it would make for some great fishing, but if they were to get into the lake it would be a disaster.
What do you guys know???

They're filter feeders. Just try and find a hook small enough to put zooplankton(sp) on LOL.

I think calling them "Asian Carp" is redundant as so may of the different Carp varieties originate from this region, there a black carp, silver carp. grass carp, big head carp...all ASIAN CARP, some more or less benign varieties (grass carp), some with the potential to do real damage i.e. the Black Carp which feed almost exclusively on mussels & mollusk. If your looking to hook into some Grass Carp (where it's allowed) try chunks of green tomato...it seems to work real good on these vegetarian critters!

I think you guys are mistaken. It's not a "filter" feeder like the typical CARP....It's actually a pretty viscious predator. Read More....

You doubt the great and not so powerful Oz! As Bob typed, there are several species of Asian Carp. Here is one species(Big Head) that I know existed at one time in Marquette Park (saw a winter killed one) and another was caught in another city lagoon. And like I said, plankton feeder:
Big Head Carp

Don't get bent out of shape......you just haven't offered any insight to the actual topic about the actual fish. The ASIAN carp.
I know the history of carp in america - thank you. I am however unfamiliar with the ASIAN carp......apparently you are as well. I have in as much time as replying to you, found the information I'm looking for elsewhere.
Sorry Mr. Moderator.

If you could, please tell us where you found it? I'd like to read it.


And Bob... it's always funny to watch someone tell you you're wrong

I believe you are wrong about the Asian Carp Bob. See for one thing, the Grass Carp does not like chunks of Green tomatoes, it's Black tomotoes. Black tomatoes are much much more effective with the good ole grassers. And as for those "vicious" carp, I've yet to see one. You see Mr. Hick's I'm a huge carp fisherman. They are my chosen specialty. I've caught 21 Big head carp, 63 Grass carp, 42 Black carp, 25 Silver carp, and countless common carp. I keep track, so what? Anyways, not once have they been vicious with each other or other species of fish that have been together in my custom pool that I had built into the back of my Dodge pickup. It holds fish and a nice 16 gallon "tub", if you will. No attacks to date. And Asian Carp are properly named. "Asian" is very fitting. Common carp (Cyprinus carpio) was brought to us from Europe in 1831 (yes Europe, but they aren't always considered Asian). The Grass Carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) was imported from eastern ASIAin '63. Silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molotrix) and Big Head carp (H. nobilis) came from China (yes, that's in...ASIA) in '73. So yes, they may reside here, but they also reside in their natural birthplace that is...ASIA. Just thought I'd help clear things up.
