Carp Baggers

Austin has grabbed the carp by the whiskers, so to speak, according to this story from The Daily Texan. Last weekend they held a big carp-fishing tournament that attracted anglers from across the country, and even declared it Carp Anglers' Days. The Town Lake tourney was strictly catch-and-release, and the fish caught had to be common carp (Cyprinus carpio) - no points for grabbing one of the grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) that were introduced to the lake to control hydrilla (Hydrilla verticillata).
