    Glad to see some positive action getting underway with the processing plants....now if we could get a few of these plants on the lakes maybe they can get their increasing numbers under control.

    Dave any insight as to why they chose this particular site? It is closer to the Asian carp center of density or something?

    I suspect there are a number of reasons but I think probably there are more of them in the rivers below the lake dams and land is cheaper down there than around the lakes...but that is just my thinking out loud.

    I had Harold Johnson (Moon River Foods, Indianola, MS Procurement Director) come Tuesday of last week & we set 300 feet of 4” Gill net, 6 feet tall, monofilament, with weighted bottom (Net 1 on map). We made the mistake of leaving it out too long while we went to lunch. Upon returning 2 hours later, the carp had literally torn it all to pieces! We positioned this net at the entrance to a “long arm” which is about 600 yards wide & about 3 – 5 feet deep. There is so many Silver Carp in this lake that we did not catch a single other type fish. Most of the Carp averaged about 10#.
    On Sat. of last week, I borrowed a “flag” type 4 “ Gill net; heavier nylon string, 5 ft tall, with no bottom weights. Having learned my lesson at Long Arm, I put out about 50 yards of this net (Net 2 on map) & waited an hour, no commotion or “driving” them. Net held up, but we caught so many we could not pull net in boat hardly. I would estimate that in 2 hours time we caught over 3000#’s of Silver Carp!! Again averaging about 10#’s and NO OTHER fish, not even a Buffalo!

    When the Asian Carp processing plant gets going (estimated Nov. 25, but Harry says realistically early January, I hope to have some specialty nets just for the Silver Carp!

    What are your suggestions?
    Researchers in Australia have come up with what they call a "Williams Trap". It is essentially a wall type net that is staked down and has a "fence" sticking above the water line about 12 - 18 inches. The carp are driven by boats to the barrier & jump over, thus being trapped in a box type net.
    My lake averages about 5 feet deep & has a flat, mud filled in bottom. This technique may work on Flower Lake.
    What do you think?
    Do you still have a carp problem we fish for them and are looking for spots that have massive schools of silvers and big head. We average 10000 lb a night. If interested let me know thxs.

    Moon River fisherman (one boat, several Chinese made nets, really not suitable, but cheap) caught about 5000 pounds in 3 days last week.

    We need to harden our boats with thicker glass windows that

    deflect the flying carp from hitting us in the face while we are going down the lake at 60 mph in a bass boat. Deflectors on the front of the boats made out of clear hard plastic or else kill the **** things by the millions with some type of fish virus disease that only kill those carp. Some biologist needs to get to work on this right away.

    One good thing is that they keep the jet skiers slowed down and the water skiers also have to be careful when skiing around these fish.

    But I can imagine the damage that one of those flying 60 lb fish could do to a guy's body if he's in a fast boat and the fish jumps out of the water and hits you in the face

    We can rename them at "Speed Bumps".
