Smoking banana peels

Has anybody smoked a grass carp? Do you always C&R these fish or are they food as well?

I do not know if this is a serious question or not? However, when I was a kid growing up we use to smoke carp and it was tasty. My mom would also can it and it was also tasty. You have to get all of the bones out of them they are boney.

The question in keeping it lit is use a torch. The will make you hallucinate like you peyote.

I've never fished for carp but, I'm thinking if I can catch one in clean water, I would eat it.

You place the carp, split in half on new cedar shingles, prop them up close to the fire and let them cook until done.

You then throw away the carp and eat the shingle.

Not to sound like some hillbilly but we ate carp as a kid. Mom said out of necessity I would also eat it out of clean water. Carp is big in Europe it is a game fish to them. Give it a try there are recipes on the web for it. Deep fry with batter would be my way of eating it.

I've heard that plank joke b4. It's a classic from my old Uncle Ray.
I need to figure out how to catch one now. Every time I cast to one, they ignore my fly or fly away.

Talk to someone from the south. I think they deep fry them (smaller carp) and eat the bones and all.

I'm not worried about how to cook it. I've had it in Chinese restaurants fried whole and it was awesome. I need to start trying to catch them un urban style.

If you are targeting grass carp aka white amur specifically then be sure to check G&F regs depanding on the water you are fishing. Urban program waters I believe you can keep 1 only if it is over 30 inches or something like that and all grassies caught in the SRP canals must be released. I don't think there are any restrictions at other state run waters but check to be sure Common carp have no restrictions.
