· Somateria spectabilis
There is a thread on Iowasportsman saying that they found bighead carp in East Boji. I really hope that this is just a rumor. That would be terrible.
Well it sounds like they traveled up the Little Sioux River due to the high water from the way the thread reads, but it's still too bad. Those three lakes are arguably the best fisheries in the state, and anything that would upset that balance concerns me.Finding the Asian Bighead is better than finding the Asian Silver. The Silver are the ones you see all the videos of. Bigheads will jump too, but not as crazy as far as I've seen as the Silvers. IDK if they don't school up or don't sit right under the surface or what, but we have the Bighead and it ain't caused a problem yet (That I know of)......
But none the less, there is no reason for them to be in there except for some irresponsible asshole, and either species being introduced is a shame and Bullshit. They should never have been brought to this country anyway.
