I don't know if this still goes on, but years ago there was a similar situation with spoonbills at Birdsong on Kentucky Lake. It was very common in the summer for them to become airborne as you were skiing, and we had numerous near misses, although none of us ever caught one in the teeth. Anyone else ever observed that behavior from spoonbills?

Craziest thing I've ever heard! I'd like to see that, though.

I have seen spoonbills surface...but never in the numbers and heights of the Asian carp.

These would come out, like head level with a skier. Obviously, not in the huge numbers of the Asian carp, but frequently enough to get your attention. And, unlike the carp, I don't believe that they were jumping in response to the boat. I think that they were jumping for whatever reason(maybe parasites, which I'm told are common in spoonbills), and the boat just happened to be coming by at that moment. This was in birdsong bay, which is relatively shallow, and not out in the main lake.

Just got back from our club tourney this past weekend at Lake Chicot and we did see several, but they weren't near as bad as I have seen in other places. Did have one bout make us have to change the undershorts though! Did see some guys in a big Mastercraft pulling skiers on the lower, much shallower end of the lake and that's where wwe had our run ins with them. All I could think about was that kid getting hit by a carp just a week or so ago on the same lake doing the same thing.

I have been hit by one before while riding in a boat, and know of several people that have been hit in the face by them when boating around Memphis on the Mississippi River.

I had a smallmouth bass jump in the boat one time. My first thought was something like "why couldn't that happen during a tournament".
