On second thought, you know that does look a whole lot like a sporting clays variant just waiting to be invented. Hmmm. Vacation in Indiana this summer?

The vibrations of the boats motors sets them off. If you were in a still boat, you could whack the water with an oar and get the same reaction.
It'd be one thing if they were rainbow trout. But carp...
Randy,

Don't dis that lowly carp until you've tried them on a fly rod.

They're so thick I think fishing with dynamite would be very productive. The rest of the guys in the boat could be ready with the 1187s for the jumpers.

Seriously though, those Asian Carp have crowded out all the native fish species in many waterways. No more bass, perch, catfish, crappie, sunnies and other native fish.

They are so bad that states are fighting each other to keep the carp out and one of the biggest battles is over the ecosystem of the Great Lakes. It is so bad that several environmental groups are attempting to have the Great Lakes severed ecologically from the Mississippi river shed. Great Lakes? Asian Carp Crisis Deepens | OnEarth Magazine
