Angler and his $800 rod are reunited

Clint Austin / caustin@duluthnews.com

Paul Kosmatka of Duluth was swept into Lake Superior while fishing the mouth of the Lester River last week. Though he was rescued several minutes later, Kosmatka lost his fly fishing rod in the process of keeping his head above water. Anglers snagged the rod the next day and tracked Kosmatka down.

Asian Carp - The Culinary Solution

Chicago chef turned fish monger Carl Galven supplied 100 pounds of Asian carp to some of his boutique restaurant customers and their hot shot chefs. Could they help Asian carp appeal to a larger market of eaters and ultimately take a bite out of the exploding population?

"So far, all I can say is that they are disgusting," reported Paul Kahan upon receiving his share at the Publican.

"The shape was salmon like, with a bull head," said David Carrier from Kith & Kin. "It kind of looked like a character from Return of the Jedi."

"They almost bleed like a land animal," said Browntrout chef Sean Sanders. "It's a very, very bloody fish."

Paul Kahan's crew didn't try that hard. "After a few attempts at butchering, we were adequately creeped out and will not go any further," he e-mailed.

Some chefs had better luck including Philip Voss who is the one struggling to fillet the fish in the video. Voss also posted his view of the Asian carp experiment on his foodie blog The Pickled Toungue.
