in Bath Illinois on the Illinois River where Rednecks are jumping for a chance to catch the Asian Carp.
This tournament will be held today and tomorrow. Fishermen and women will jump in their boats to compete for cash prizes based on who can haul in the most Asian Carp, an invasive species that threatens the ecosystem of native fish and is best known for leaping out of the water when startled by loud boat motors.
Participants will don their most ridiculous costumes, also for prize money.
This is happening not far from me and I would love to see this. I have seen this fish before, jumping up in the water.
And this is my fish story for today. I hope all is well in your little corner of the world.
