Had my arm numb for about 20 minutes by one. Talked to a man about a month ago that got hit on the forehead. He had a slight concussion. He was talking stupid. Had one jump in my boat. I threw it, it jumped back in and broke my jig pole.

Couple years back was fishing Il river near Ottawa,IL couple fishermen came in to dock, a silver carp hit one of them in boat an a fair sized part of fish's dorsal fin broke off and was sticking in man's arm. Bloody mess, Ambulance took him to hospital, never saw him back on river.

Kentucky Lake is where is was talking about. I knew they were at the base of Kentucky dam. Haven't been on the river much in the last few years due to too small a boat. Just remedied that problem and now learn this. Ugh!!! Time to start building a cage on my new boat I guess. Several of our local lakes are now reporting snakeheads also.

Apparently they are well established in the Ohio river and are advancing slowly up both the Sciota and Great Miami Rivers in Ohio. Remember a story last yr on WHIO (Channel 7 ) about a guy operating a bass boat below a navigation lock East of Cincinnati; apparently with the boat at speed he was hit squarely in the face by an Asian carp and was critically injured. His fishing buddy found help fairly quickly, but the guy lost sight in 1 eye. The carp weighed over 10 lbs and did not survive the assault. Talk about taking them out the HARD way...

2 years ago while boating to the spot, we where going to fish, on the Kansas River I was hit in the arm by one of these carp about 1 pound. I got even and used his head for bait to catch a 50 pound blue cat
