Are you sure that is an Asian Carp? Pectoral fins seem to be in different locations on the body.

Posting misleading or incorrect information on important matters and having folks buy into that information is what leads to unfounded panic and scares.

Get your facts right before posting on an important matter for us Great Lakers.

BTW: My wife and I went fishing today and each caught our perch tickets.

[QUOTE=OSUdaddy;1288119]Posting misleading or incorrect information on important matters and having folks buy into that information is what leads to unfounded panic and scares.

QUOTE FROM THE ARTICLE
Waller sent photos to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, which forwarded the photos to Dave Kelch, Ohio Sea Grant Extension specialist from the Ohio State University Extension Office in Elyria.

Kelch, who is also aquatic and invasive species program leader for the Ohio Sea Grant program, identified the fish as an Asian grass carp.

I dont think Blish is Waller or Kelch, or did he forward the photos or write the article..Hmmm.

But if he is and Kelch is Blish THEN its him that's not got his facts right... Right.. LOL
There are more than 1 species of Asian carp.
either way Blish only posted a (story) and with Markfish in NY instead of dealing with Mr.White, I found it interesting.
Thanks Blish

I'd put my money on Kelch --- Article didn't say it was the "flying" carp we are trying to keep out of the Great Lakes. It is probably an Amur -- ie grass carp. Ketch is a scientist and fisherman and VERY knowledgeable.

..well one things for certain...if that fish is responsible for helping 'clean-up' lake Erie..then judging by the size of it..it should be doing a pretty good job..perhaps more of this species in the waterway might help reduce such things as this "UGLY" algae bloom thats been going on for sometime now. As long as this species of fish doesnt hurt the native fish or cause irreversible damage to the 'natural food chain'..then whats the point or arguement about it? Besides hooking into this 'bad boy' would bring a thrill and a half fighting in. Even your massive sheepshead would have a tough time out battling this!!!!

It just a grass carp...white amur. We have been seeing them in Erie a long time while bowfishing. The ones everyone is worried about are bigheads and silver carp.

The article itself seems to be pretty clear on what they caught. They indicated that it was an Asian carp but a sterile variety. They did also note that they will jump like their close relatives that we fear.

I guess my biggest question is what killed it. They said it was bleeding from the gills. That sounds more like an internal disease to me than crashing a boat or prop. I am a bit surprised that the DNR guys did not want to take samples from the fish.
