    1 carp 5 lbs or larger
    carrots & potatos
    I pine board without knots
    salt & peper & butter

    Clean carp well. heat oven to 350 degrees. Stuff carp with veggies. Salt & pepper. Good to coat carp with melted butter also.
    Place on pine board and baked for 90 min. Remove from oven. Throw away carp and eat the pine board.

    Good luck:embarassed:

    I've heard of people smoking them, but you won't catch me eating one anytime soon.

    Don't know about carp but I'm sure somebody, somewhere, has a Gramma thats knows how to fix it up so it tastes great. This applies to just about all fish and wild game. I know a guy that eats one type of junk fish and he says they are fine as long as you ice them down right after catching them.

    I've heard of several ways of preparing them, just don't know if I could make myself try it. Kinda like people eating groundhog or raccoon, ya know.
    Check out the BOC library articles or search for recipes for carp.

    Keep 'em alive untill you get ready to clean 'em, cut the tail and let them bleed out the kidney, fillet, trim off all red meat, soak in salt water for a couple of hrs., rinse in fresh water, score every 3/16" or so across the feather bones, dip in Andy's fish meal, deep fry 'em untill they have been floating for a few minutes, serve. This also works for suckers like buffalo, etc.:cool2:

    I never ate one, but I can tell you that they are preferred food fish throughout most of the world. Amereicans are just prejudiced against them for some reason.
