    Small, young carp are best served on an 8/0 Gamakatsu Octopus Circle hook. That is, when serving them up to flatheads.

    eating carp of any size can pose serious health
    risks (cancer,AIDS,MS,ect)i bet you would
    be much happier with a nice dish of pike,or
    perhaps walleye,these fish are safe to eat ;)

  7. come on guys he asked a serious question... :rolleyes:



    soak a small cedar plank in water over night...



    take one small carp and fellet making sure to remove the mud line from each half...


    mix several of your favorite seasonings together to make a dry rub and rub

    over both sides of the fellets...


    lightly oil one side of the plank so the fish

    won't stick...


    place some sliced onion on the

    plank then the fish on top and then

    put in an oven preheated to 350 and

    cook for one hour...



    after one hour remove





    fish






    toss in garbage and eat the plank ;) :D :eek:

    I've seen guys fillet them and actually fry up the smaller fillets. Never really tried it that way though. I C&R anyways. I did try the smoked carp they have for sale up at Cheesehaven in Port Clinton. It was pretty tasty, but at $12/lb, that's not my cup of tea! LOL.

    I did'nt know if anyone ate them anymore. Also I knew this would generate discussion. Great job, no one hurt the post, just informed info.
    Thanks Only way I would take one is if it was hurt or died but I would not waste it.

    Fish,

    There are quite a few people at Buckeye Lake that keep them. See them going home all the time. I know quite a few fillet them out, and actually make a shredded fish sandwich out of them as well. Not sure how they do it though.

    Did an interview with Dick Martin a couple of weeks back on Carp Fishing. He said he keeps some under 3 lbs and pan fries them like he does bluegills (breaded, etc.). Says it's just as tasty as gills, whitebass, etc. Really cannot tell the difference. He did concur though that anything larger and it takes on a stronger taste.
