Well, it was just a matter of time. They are like cockroaches, if you find one, give it some time and then you will find 1,000. Learn to live with them, bowfish off the back of running boats.

Well, is having asian craps in there really that bad? I mean, they would be fun to catch and might taste good as well....

Yes, any exotic species introduced to a system is likely to quickly turn invasive. Research this a little bit, you will find it amazing how much exotics can damage a ecosystem.

Yea it would be really fun at first, and I wouldn't mind bowfishing for them... but the effects are going to be devastating

One of the things that scares me the most is how they jump out of the water when scared.. People have died down south hitting these things at full throttle.

My Grandpa always used to talk about fishing being so good they were jumping into the boat, if only he were here now....he would only be satisfied if they were Northerns though.

No but seriously the carp we have now have caused enough problems already, we have to keep these from spreading!

I think the big head carp is a different specie then the ones that jump out of the water when scared

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
