These bigheads are edible and are eaten all over asia, so what happens? We import shrimp, cat fish, and tilapea, from asia, why???
    How about tariffs, that stop us from exporting, but allow those same coutrys to flood our markets. Wheres the level playing field?Its NOT big government its dumb government, and it didn't just start 4 yrs ago!
    Yep. I agree with we need to be able to send our fish overseas.

    Dumb gubment almost certainly started Jan. 20th 09. Thanks to stripPer fisherman, alewives invaded Cumberland. Thanks to hybrid fishermen they are showing up at Barren. The muskie fisherman that dumped the bucket of trout at Green actually helped fishing, unlike the KDWFR unleashing the greatest nemisis of SMALLMOUTH bass, the otter. I'd say kdfwr still has some splaining

    Funny you should mention the otters. A friend and I fished Green yesterday and saw a "pack" (or whatever they're called) of otters and we counted six in the group. They were chomping on some large baitfish in one of the pockets across from the State Resort Park. We also happened upon a large shad that was dying and I couldn't identify what type of "shad" it was, as I had never seen this before. Now it has me thinking I may have seen an Asian Carp , although I can't confirm this....
