Animal Planet at 8:00pm e/p SUNDAY September 30th, Off The Hook Extreme Catches, Season 1 Episode 10 “Carpocalypse”
Americans are known for their ingenuity and when it comes to fishing we’re no different. Animal Planet’s host of the new series “Off The Hook Extreme Catches” traveled across the USA and dared to seek out the most ingenious ways Americans are putting fish on the hook!
From kayaking for bass down treacherous rapids to fishing from a jet-ski he has uncovered some really productive ways to fish.
This season of “Off The Hook Extreme Catches” comes to and end tonight with the seasons finale that’s sure to get us Carp guys excited! Tonight’s episode reminds me of some old movie called “Apocalypse Now” this episode is rightly called “Carpocalypse Now”! Why, host Eric Young goes after the invasive species known as the Asian Carp, and when I say invasive I mean these fish have invaded out waters and have become a nuisance to fishermen everywhere. There’s not too many redeeming qualities about these carp except they make good fertilizer, and if you’re starving you’d have no problem catching one.
In this episode Eric meets up with a bunch of Carp Fishermen named The Peoria Carp Hunters and has some down-home fun with these critters! Talk about shooting fish in a barrel watch em water ski down the Illinois River with implements of destruction in hand, as these invasive Carp meet their makers on the end of a spear or tennis racket!
As an added bonus to the finale episode of “Off The Hook” watch as we put remote control boats to the task of catching some fish too!
The show airs on Animal Planet at 8:00pm e/p SUNDAY September 30th, Off The Hook Extreme Catches, Season 1 Episode 10 “Carpocalypse”
