The Great Lakes are under threat from an Asian carp invasion that could wipe out fishing stocks, and with it, the lakes’ billion dollar fishery.There is concern that if carp make it into Lake Michigan, they will gobble up the plankton that native fish feed on. and could show up in local lakes surrounding the great lakes as well
these fish can, and will jump out of the water when they feel the vibrations of a motor boat
this can be very dangerous to boaters ,could you imagine being hit by a four foot carp while your traveling 25 to 4o mph .this could kill the recreational boating along the great lakes.
In December 2009, DNA testing found evidence that Asian carp were within a few miles of Lake Michigan, yet the locks which provide the carp with a direct path into Lake Michigan remain open.
Stop Asian Carp ! we all have to get together and make sure our Government shuts down water ways that will allow the destructive Asian carp into lake Michigan , If this happens it will destroy the fishing and boating industries to all the surrounding states of the great lakes please help out by signing this petition that will get sent to our federal government ! we have to stop the Asian carp invasion
The Asian carp was found some 40 miles from Lake Michigan, which was the closest to the Great Lakes the species has been found
Silver carp and the Asian Bighead, which can grow to 5 feet and weigh more than 100 pounds (45 kg), have come to dominate sections of the Mississippi River and its tributaries.
Authorities fear that if the carp swim up to the Great Lakes, the largest fresh-water resource in the world, they could create an “ecological disaster” by consuming the bottom of the food chain and ruining the lakes’ $7 billion fishery.

This place will be for chatting about stuff that has to do with fishing whether it is from a boat or on the shore or ice.

Later we’ll add a place for my fishing buddies to share their fishing pictures and stories from around the world.
Don’t forget about fishing tackle, did anyone get a new rod or reel for Christmas? Know any hot lures or fishing rigs? What do you use for bait?
