Sword-Wielding, Waterskiing Fish Hunters: Smart or Insane?

Every now and then there’s a video so utterly crazy that it starts to seem like a good idea… well, almost.

Two men, fed up with the invasive Asian Carp species heading toward the Great Lakes, took to the river armed with samurai swords, Wolverine-like steel claws and spiked body armor. And, what’s the best way to hunt Asian Carp with swords? On water skis of course.

According to the video, Asian Carps were brought to America and immediately invaded the waters. Now, the leaping fish are heading toward the Great Lakes and the government is trying to stop them with poison or genetic engineering. The two guys, who call themselves the Peoria Carp Hunters, are using their own ingenious ways to combat the large fish.

Keep in mind that these are “professionals” so you should definitely not strap spikes to your body, grab a sword and go waterskiing, not that you’d probably want to anyway.

Take a look at the video and let us know whether you think these guys are cool or off their rocker.
