The MNSJ Summer Tour Part 1 continues in Alexandria.  Day 2 highlights include some creekside chaos where nearly 500 pounds of carp were removed and relocated into our 55 gallon barrels.

488 pounds of carp were weighed and sold to Bio Corporation in Alexandria.  They specialize in providing preserved animals for school biology classes and dissection projects.  They also have a turtle operation that the carp serves as food for.

We’ve got stops in Walker, Brainerd, Ely and more coming.  Check back for more pictures and a complete story, including wading knee deep into the water, trapping a wounded carp and employing a football-like handoff to bring it to dry land.

Tonight we wait out the storm hoping for a break to get out with the lights on.  Otherwise, we’ll be back out in the morning, next to the creek and hopefully in the boat too.
