Peoria Carp Hunters featured in Animal Planet show
PEORIA – An Animal Planet TV show featuring the acrobatic exploits of Asian carp along the Illinois River will air Sunday.
TV crews spent four days filming in and around Peoria last summer for an episode of "Off the Hook: Extreme Catches" called "Carpocalypse Now."
The invasive species is feared because it could have a disastrous impact on aquatic life, boating and fishing if the carp migrate from the Mississippi and its tributaries to Lake Michigan. They fish are also known for leaping from the water.
