I heard this video clip was taken on Twin Lakes. I think maybe a couple fish over the limit?

Yep. That is Twin Lakes all right. You don't even need a fishing pole.

DNR has been experimenting again. Those are hybrid bass crossed with frogs. You can either fish with a pole or take a shotgun for some wingshooting.

For all we know, the guy in the front of the boat could be Uncle Milf?

Troy: You haven't seen crazy, yet.

Biggest fear is that these Asian carp will make it into the great lakes and most likely into twin lakes and every inland lake in Michigan.

Envision looking at the sunset across Lake Michigan, with billons of jumping carp. I am not making this up... just looking forward.

Quote:
"One fisherman was running up behind an island over here at 15 (to) 20 miles an hour, and about a 40-pounder jumped out and hit him right in the chest," said commercial fisherman Ronny Hopkins of Compliance Fish and Caviar in Livingston County, Ky. "He was down for two weeks. If he hadn't been sitting in a tractor seat with a solid back, it would have knocked him out of the boat."

Hopkins said he has had as many as 15 to 20 silver carp jump into his boat while running commercial nets, and various reliable accounts suggest that the silver carp, the most likely to jump, can rise 8 to 10 feet out of the water.

"They react to a boat and just go wild," said Benjy Kinman, the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife director of fisheries. "If somebody bangs something or stomps on the floor of an aluminum boat if they're up in a little creek mouth or something they'll all jump out of the water like popcorn."


Read all about it. Truth is stranger than fiction. The above video might be what we all have to look forward to?
