VIDEO: Redneck Fishing Tournament 2014

THE ongoing invasion of Asian carp in waterways in the US has resulted in a variety of measures to combat the spread of the pest species.

The Asian carp has become notorious for its fear of boats and watercraft, which causes them to jump high into the air, often resulting in injury to boaters.

One of the more comical events that has sprung up due to the Asian carp spread in America is the Redneck Fishing Tournament, recently held in Bath, Illinois. In this video, Illinois Times reporter Bruce Rushton takes you to the action.
