Fishing hot spot: Where carp jump into your boat

If you can find your way to the small drainage ditch in the flooded Spoon River, you'll find a fishing hot spot that we dare say is unparalleled -- if you're into carp. Asian carp to be exact, the ones that will literally jump into your boat. Who needs a fishing rod?

Never heard of Asian carp? Never seen what Asian carp do? Well, then, fishermen, cast your eyes on this:

The fishy post by "boodhaman" in November is approaching a million views on YouTube and you can see why. The volume of fish in that small drainage ditch is absolutely incredible (especially starting at the :46 mark).

We've seen other Asian carp videos, but nothing matches this one for quantity of fish.

  1. Such a big fish. Ive seen many kinds of videos like I watch here, it seems different to others. Unique.

  2. That's really wild, you should be careful next time.


Please tell us what you think.
All we ask is that you keep it clean.
