I saw a report on this on the news last night. I had no idea there were so many fish in the canals. Anybody know what kind they are? See a photo at http://www.nola.com/news/index.ssf/2009 ... _w_es.html

Don't know what kind but it happens every year. Sweetie said he'd guess carp is one kind.

Doesn't mosquito control put 'em in the canals to eat skeeter larvae?

Those are carp.

As a kid, we caught alligator gar, bluegill, large mouth and stripped bass, and lots of turtles. Some friends caught a couple of piranha, or fish that looked like them.
