Asian carp target of fishing tournament in Utica

Posted by wlpo on May 7, 2014

How well can you hit a moving target? Asian Carp, an invasive species common in the Illinois River, move fast and occasionally jump above the surface. That will be your target during the annual State Bowfishing Championships.

The fishing championship will be July 19 and 20 on the Illinois River at Starved Rock State Park. It includes daytime and nighttime competitions. It’s 30 dollars a person to enter. There’s a minimum $1,000 payout.

Learn more about the championship by listening to an interview that’s available at the WLPO AM and FM dot com news page.
