Bighead Carp

Two fishermen recently caught a 45-pound bighead carp while bowfishing on the Missouri side of Bull Shoals Lake, the Springfield News-Leader reported.

Nathan Recktenwald is a fisheries biologist with the Missouri Department of Conservation. He identified the bighead carp as a fish that the department doesn't want to find in its reservoirs.
