hi guys, about 25 years ago on lynches river in s.c I was fishing with a peace of cut brim, on the bottom with tite line and rod.when I hooked into a carp that turned out to be 17 lbs. we tried to fry some of him, it was not so good.however, my mother took some of it and hashed it up and made patties out of it with salt ,pepper, and onions, and fried it up in a pan, and it was good carp. havent tried any more since then. thought I would just share this with you. have a blessed day.
