Found this link on the bbc. Its about Bluegills that were gifted to the Emperor of Japan 50 years ago, some escaped and are now running amok throughoutt Japan.

Sounds like a few of the stunted metro lakes.... smile.gif

Can we take the sunnies back and they can have all the carp and milfoil they gave us?

It sounds like they would gladly make that trade too. If only it were that easy.

Made me think of the old saying though,"one mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter." But that may not really apply to fish.

Yes sir. Make no mistake gentleman. The North American Sunfish is one of the most aggressive fishes on the planet.

They don't complain about their non-native largemouth bass.

Don't forget the other little gift - the snakeheads that are invading the east...nastier than snot rockets and muskies.

Daze Off

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
