Asian carp swimming in Chicago lagoon?

– The Illinois Department of Natural Resources plans to take possession of a large fish pulled from the Garfield Park lagoon on Chicago’s West Side to determine whether it is really a Big Head Asian carp.

There was a major fish kill in the lagoon this week, and a fisherman found the suspected Asian carp Thursday.

He took it to Henry’s Sport and Bait, where Tom Palmisano says it weighed more than 70 pounds.

The lagoon is not connected to any river or other waterway, so its fish cannot get into Lake Michigan.

Palmisano says he suspects the DNR may have accidentally brought in some young Asian carp when it was stocking the lagoon with catfish. The DNR plans to go to the bait shop on Monday to examine the fish.
