cretinbob: still a repeat


Of what, exactly? Please direct me to the Wisconsin Carp story already greenlit buddy. Or were you thinking of the Thunder Bay, Ontario carp from Friday that this headline is a continuity nod to? Still not a repeat.

Why would it hurt the fishing and recreation industries? Can't you catch carp?

I thought we were worried about Snakeheads more than Asian Carp now anyway?

1) You can catch carp, and contrary to popular belief, they aren't bad eating apparently (via a Detroit Metro Times article/taste test awhile back). Some folks are already trying to make money off of it
2) The thing is that the carp are aggressive and end up displacing native fish, and could possibly do so to the point of their extinction. We like the native fish.
3) I also like being able to boat without fear of getting smacked in the face by a fish jumping out of the effing water, but that's me

They are edible, but not great eating. They have bones in their flesh, the meat turns grey when you cook it, and the meat has an unpleasant aftertaste.

Asians like them, though. But Asians also like farmed dog meat, pig uterus, and snake stew.

I was being nice and not posting that pic, but...

So friend of mine lived with someone who was researching lampreys and capturing them and whatnot. They had one in a fishtank in their house. One day, they look at the tank... and it's gone. Can't find it anywhere. Doors and windows were closed, and besides, what the f--k would eat a lamprey...

Friend said he had nasty nightmares until they moved out and found it behind a bookcase, dead. Apparently it threw itself out of the tank and wiggled there.

/and now I'm gonna have nightmares again too
//song about lamprey wrangling, kind of

You can find a great deal on Asian carp at your local Wal*Fart.

First we need a new name. How about Asian Black River Bass. Worked for the Patagonian Toothfish.

Then we start a program of large scale river fishing. Have to establish that before we go into phase three.

Finally, we start a marketing campaign. Hammer it home, sell it as a health remedy, claim it's higher in Omega-3 oils than flax.


That's if you want to be easy on them. The other option is to forbid fishing for any other fish than carp in affected bodies of water until there is no trace of the asian carps. Tell the fishing public they can take home as many carp but not what they'd rather have and you'll see "enlightened self interests" take care of the problem faster than any conventional government program.

Fishing, how does it work.

You can catch or release other fish but doing so doesn't necessarily guarantee their survival. If you do it right, damn good chance, but not a sure thing. People who fish are generally doing so RECREATIONALLY; force them to capture only a fish they don't want to eat, yeah, that'll go over well. I know I'd hesitate before dropping $15 for the privilege.

Also, the GREAT Lakes are called 'great' for a reason. They are really, really effing big.

Finally, people have been catching (unintentionally, usually) and smushing gobis, zebra mussels, etc. for awhile now. I do get some self-satisfaction from smashing a gobi, but even the gobi-catching competition I know they have in this state can't get rid of all of them where they're at.

/smushed some zebra mussels that stuck to our caught-fish-cage a week or two ago
//anytime I fish off the Detroit River shore by the SO's grandparents' slip I end up killing a number of gobies that end up eating a significant % of my bait
//bastards
