Showed this to a buddy during one of our lectures.... bad idea. We were laughing quietly at it... then the dude whipped out the sword haha Cover was blown. Jim, I agree. It's like a christmas fruitcake, it just keeps on giving.

Interesting group of guys. I can see how the carp ruin the ability use the water, brutal.

That was pretty funny but what a bummer to have a waterway ruined by these fish. Has anyone here experienced this?

Rob I used to ride that river all the time, and a bunch of my riding buddies are still up there. The fish really don't bother while you're riding. Wake boats don't excite them that much. It's shallow water, aluminum johnboats, and outboard motors that really get them going.

Having said that, I have seen two people get hit while riding, but that's over three seasons averaging 2-3 days a week from mid march to late oct. so it's pretty rare.
