An Asian carp fishing tournament starts today at Kentucky and Barkley lakes.

A total of 21 teams from Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee have signed up for some carp madness.

Wildlife officials hope the fishers will reel in 100 tons of Asian carp out of Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley.

The final weigh-in is scheduled for 7 p.m. tomorrow at the Kentucky Dam Marina ramp.
