More of the dreaded silver carp have been caught on the Mississippi River near Winona. The fish, which can weigh 20 pounds, will likely send boaters to other recreation areas if they become established in the area.
At this point, Asian carp are showing no indications of stopping their upriver migration. This is the second silver carp caught in the same location within the past year. A much larger relative, the bighead carp, has been discovered as far north as the St. Croix River.
