    artcarney, thanks for the link to the prices and other info. My wish is the commercial fisherman can get more than $0.15 per pound. A lot of work for 1,000 lbs of fish for $150. Maybe the State could add at least a $0.05-$0.10 per pound subsidy to the 'Current' price to help us remove these and help the commercial fisherman with their costs for our Lakes/Rivers. These commercial are the best chance right now to help us with the problem.

    The state is already chipping in I think $0.10 or $0.12 a pound now - well it might be a combination of the State and KDFWR or it may just be KDFWR solely doing it, I haven't heard exactly where that money is coming from.

    I did ask about a weekend warrior program for people (like myself) who might want to do it a little bit on the side to make some extra cash and what license would be needed. Here's what they said:

    ...if you are a resident of KY and you wanted to net Asian carp you could buy the $150 commercial license and be legal. There is also a free commercial license that KDFWR offers to fishermen who only target and harvest Asian carp. If you use the free license, you still need to purchase gear tags. Gear tags are required on every 100ft of net, so how long your nets are will determine how many gear tags you need (you can purchase more than the first 10 you receive with your license). If you buy the $150 license you can also harvest rough fish including buffalo, common carp, and drum, but not catfish, paddlefish, or sturgeon. However, Asian carp must account for at least 65% of your total catch every month.
