    Me and cbentley had a good shoot on barren the other day. Shot quite a few gar, buffalo, carp. Saw probably 50 silver carp in three groups. Killed 3 of them and winged another. Anyone else seeing asian carp on barren river around BG? Killed two in all of last year on barren but we didn't see them like we did last week.

    Ran one through the meat grinder with an onion, a green pepper, sleeve of ritz crackers and fried in oil. Made salmon type patties with it. Man, that wasnt bad at all. Make a heck of sandwich.

    Sounds like a good shoot. Been a long time since I've shot up your way. I'm sure there's plenty up there

    I'm sure there are hundreds if not thousands there already. I've saw a bunch in Green, so it's just a matter of time til they get there.

    Saw a youtube where some guy/company was making a good living catching tons of these, freeze drying and shipping them off to China. They love 'em there and prefer these from Kentucky and not China (has a better taste) because our waters aren't polluted like in China.
