Wow! Those fish are insane. I hope they taste good as they sure are easy to catch!
Are these the ones that are messing up ecosystems by eating everything and killing off all the other fish?

The DNR told me they are plankton eaters and they compete with fish like spoonbill. Here in Kentucky we just got the population up good and now the carp are eating all their food. We asked the game warden if we could shoot them like clay pigeons and he said as long as we used steel shot he didn't care. Game on.
