Two thumbs up for the Sturgeon!!! We need to train these things to take out the rest of the gnats!!

We don't need anything as exotic at a sturgeon. Midwestern waterways have Asian Jumping Carp. What they lack in size, they make up for in numbers...coming soon to a lake near you...

I suspect this Asian carp infestation was actually initiated by ski boat drivers and was initially aimed at tubers. Taking out jet skiers was really an unexpected side-benefit.

jrandol- this is a good start, as long as it's only the water gnat that is hit, not the rider.

Would you take that attitude if a car took out your bud riding a motorcycle? You guys are above that crap I hope. That had to render a level 4 headache... I imagine that fish would put a hurting on a air chair also

Valid point, but I don't think my Air Chair holds the same general annoyance level for other lake users that PWC's are often seen to have. Black humor is still humor and somehow, the concept of a jet skier getting hit by a fish is just a tad funnier IMHO than a motorcycle getting hit by a car.

Of course, many of us have a "cob stuck up your butt snob stamp" when it comes to stereotypes of discourtesy on the water...;)

Just an observation, no offense meant.

Relax Dog Paw......it's all in good fun and jokes. Certainly none of us would want to see anyone get hurt on the water regardless of their choice of water vice.

Had a female friend taken out by a deer while on her bike. That, you expect to hear about, especially around here. But taken out by a fish.... hmmm?

Hey all's cool guys it just touches a nerve thats all. Seen good people die a pointless death up close on both. You dont forget there faces. I sure there a few other PWC riders lurking here other than me. On our lake the ski boat owners have the nicest PWC's LOL! I just let you know how I feel. Most of the time it does not type out very well8p


Now talking about vices I would love nothing more than to affix a K Bar to a broom handle and take out every tube in sight. But I dont fantasize over it.... "really I dont" LOL

Mac the only thing that annoys me about a air chair is my inability to master it....... It's that daym cob going sideways;)

If I'm riding a jet ski anytime soon.... I'm staying off the Suwannee river.

It sounds like the plot line to some cheesy horror movie along the lines of 'Anaconda' or 'Lake Placid'.

Or like a double cheese Piranha 2 where the fish could fly.
