This video may not be very new, but it's just starting to make people smile.

Here, this nice Midwestern family thought they were about to have a calm day of uncle, father and son fishing. Instead, as they drove their motorboat down the Spoon River of Illinois they met a much more hysterical fate.

Don't worry about those fish, though. They're feisty Asian Carp, and at around 10 pounds each, these aggressive little fellas can hold their own. This particular type of carp is severely overpopulated and thought to be highly detrimental to the nearby environments they overtake.
