If you know how to fish or you just have some time to kill, you might want to head to the water. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources has a bounty on black carp which means if you can reel it in, you could get some money.

The fish have been captured in the Ohio River just miles from the state line. According to RTV6, black carp are a threat to Indiana’s mollusk population.

Catch a carp? Do the following if you want to earn $100 per carcass.

  • Keep the fish and make note of its location.
  • Cool the fish on ice once you have killed it.
  • Call the DNR at 1-866-663-9684 to report the fish.
