The Best Thing You’ll See Today: Carp Basketball

You haven’t heard of “skarping” yet? It’s carp basketball, obviously. 

Asian carp have invaded many major rivers in the United States and have quickly become an overpopulated hazard and nuisance for fisherman and boaters alike.

However, this group of guys has put some serious American ingenuity into their new game of “skarping” that has gone viral over the last week.

There’s been a few attempts at this before, but the basketball goal addition takes this sport to a whole new level.

Get ready for the best thing you’ll see all day.

Carp sports are taking off quickly throughout the country to battle this carp invasion.

Carp basketball may take the cake in the best carp sport, though.

Rules of the game:

  • Strap on your wakeboard or water skis and secure your helmet. Carp smacks can hurt.
  • Net the leaping carp, making sure you have a strong grip on the net.
  • Slam dunk the carp into the makeshift basketball hoop.
  • Tally up the carp and have a fish fry!

Now that looks like a fun day.
