I don't think they have grass carp in the lakes I fish so, I was only punning on the grass carp. I do want to be ready when I see one though and I haven't done much research except for Cinda gave me some notes/tips a few years ago which I tucked away in my panty drawer.

Go buy a copy of Big Bambu that still has the paper in it. You should be able to smoke half a carp in it. That's the best way I can think of.

Agreed SAT. I bet it's like a scary clown version of Indiana Jones in there. You don't want to know what you have to go through to find fortune and glory.

Ok Ok. All you gotta do is go fishing with SAT. You will catch all the carp whilst he hauls in a measly tilapia

No, the real trick is you gotta just keep the pretty orange ones they put in there for people to go "oooh! and Ahhhh!"at. They, I have been told have no bones about em.

Carp is Christmass Dinner in...

...the Czech Republic!

I dated and almost married a Czech woman at one point. She would get these cravings for carp. On one such evening I took her to a super nice fish place - spent $30 on a salmon cut for her, and she said "it's good, but not as good a Czech carp."

So there you have it. The cure for the salmon shortage...
