    Sensory overload!

    This is for mature audiences only. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

      OK please explain.

    2. mishu Says:

      What kind of fish are these and where do they run?

    3. Jonathan Says:

      I don’t know. If you go to and search for video 1125465453 you can probably find out.

      I think they are a type of carp but it is hard to tell. Nobody cares about them (even game wardens and natural resource people) so you can basically do anything to them and get away with it. Most fishermen toss them up on the shore around here if caught to make more room for the larger gamefish such as bass, northern pike and muskellunge. Carp do that jumping thing in the lakes around here all the time and won’t notice you – you can boat right next to them and they just do their thing. I believe it is a spawning activity.

      What, no dynamite?

      Sorry, Ralf. I’ll try to do better next time ;)

      This link ( goes to the story behind the video, prepared by the fishing outfitter Brackett Outdoors.

      The fish are Asian carp that have become naturalized in American waters, here the Illinois River. They jump because the boat noise scares them, according to Brackett.
