I've been lurking for a while, picking up some great recipies, but finally registered so I could ask questions. I need to know what to do with Carp. I know some people won't even eat it, but my nephew has been having GREAT luck catching them lately and keeps bringing them to me. So far I've been smoking and pickling them, which is what my grandma taught me, but I'm getting a surplus of them! They're running about 6-8 lbs, and have about 2-3 lbs of fillets. Can they be fried or baked? Right now I have one that's about 8 lbs on a stringer in my backyard fish pond, scaring the heck out of my goldfish but I don't want to clean it until I decide what to do with it. Yes, I know the 'you catch it, you clean it' rule, but I must not have taught it to my nephew well enough! At least the 'remains' make good fertilizer tilled into my garden! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
