    Fished two rods with grits and no luck! Threw out another one with sweet corn only on it. Caught this small carp. It's not very big but it was fun to catch. I don't know why they wouldn't hit grits.

    Looks like a lot of fun! Good job! a little rep coming your way.

    funny never heard much about fishing for carp with grits- suspect its a southern thing. As a bonafide yankee; I've not had much experience with grits:smile2:

    Did you chum for him? I've heard that helps alot!

    I caught about a 12 lb carp saturday on Pickwick in Florence Alabama.........I don't know much about carp but they were on top of the water and looked like they were laying on top of each other on top of the water..I had never seen anything like that....Are carp good to eat? I always thought it was a trash fish....Thanks

    Carp are good to eat, if they are prepared right. Mostly I've smoked em, but the wife does a great job on em I just don't know how to do it myself or I would tell ya.

    Some folks can em, and claim thats a good way to prep em. Cooked right they are good.

    :cool2: i have heard, that letting a carp bleed out in a 5 gal bucket, then scaling him and cutting him up in chucks and letting the chunks sit in the blood for a while is good eating for catfish.
