THe carp are bad in the rivers around here too. I have never had a problem in a faster boat but on cruisers, fishing boats etc. They are horrible.

Wow. This seems to be the best I can see on youtube. IT's a 2 parter.

and part 2.

In the second part, they get a crazy number of fish jumping by throwing a bit of electric current into the water.

Anyways that was FUN.

I know it wouldn't be funny if it happened to me, but I almost bust a gut laughing when I saw that one video - the guy at the tiller of an outboard caught at least a 10-pound carp right in the nuts!

Man, that had to hurt...
