Very cool color, the ones in my lake are very brown color.

Carp is edible if it comes from a clean source of water !

What I’ve done before is fillet it, careful not to hit the Mud vein which is just under the skin then being careful to remove that with skin (it also helps if you soak fish in a little salty water for a day or two in the refrigerator if you’re going to got it try cooking it whole but I’ve never done that)

Cut in chunks, season them, put in some flour egg wash and throw it in hot peanut oil,

I’ve pulled chunks of meat off avoiding the vain yes you’ll waste some of the fish but it’s not like they’re not plentiful,

I’ve had people eat them and they thought they were eating striped bass Ha ha

Re: Fishing

Unlike Hungarians, I don't eat carp. At the lake i fished at you used to be able to take home all the small carp for consumption but the owner got fed up with all the Hungarians (gypsies) lying about how much carp they caught so now its only sport fishing.

The carp in the picture is the only one of that kind i caught, all the other ones where like this but there was noone around to take pictures of me with the carp.

This one was 70cm or "a couple of feet and some inches" in your crazy system.

I live about 100 yards from a major river here in northwestern NJ (Muskonetcong). They stock the trout right down the street and I’ve never gone fishing there in the 23 years I’ve lived here. Just never got into it as a kid.(edited)

Re: Fishing

Lucky you! Our idiot governor closed ALL waters in the state to all fishing. Asshole.

Re: Fishing

I'm still waiting for outdoor temps to go up, i can usually start fishing at the end of april.

I'm pretty sure it's to get people outside not in public and mabye to get some free food since the stores shelves were empty.(edited)

Re: Fishing

They opened fishing season early here in CT as well, unfortunately (fortunately) I'm still working so I haven't been able to get out on the water much.

But water temps are still hovering around 50* so the fishing hasn't been great yet. Which is a good thing, otherwise I wouldn't have as much free time to finish my winter moped projects!

I like to get blue crabs in the marshes off of Barn Island on Stonington, CT. I usually anchor out in my sailboat for the weekend and go out around 4AM with my dingy and a flashlight and net them in the shallow water. I steam them up for breakfast and drink a beer and watch the sun rise.

Also at low ride I can dive down and grab a quohaug and stuff my pockets with them, get enough to steam up as an afternoon snack.

Re: Fishing

I used to use a big strainer basket, crack open a few clams, let the crabs climb in to get em and hoist em out. Not much meat on the near-shore guys but we got some decent size doing this off a bridge by boothbay

Boothbay maine? I'm not far from there. We take an old 10 speed rim tied up so it stayed flat when u pulled it up. Tie some chicken bones to it and toss it off the dock. Crabs love it. You could use a moped rim also.(edited)
