> caught 12# grass carp in river 9/14 2 miles north of abbott's. has any one else caught any? if so where, how big and on what? these fish look totally different than the standard issue carp.they have pointy heads and a mullet-like mouth. their dorsals are troutlike as opposed to long and spiny on a common carp. who stocked these and why?need info.
I don't know what a grass carp is, but my daughter spotted an albino carp on the Tallulah River upstream from the Sandy Bottom Campground in mid-August. She tried to catch it with a nymph, corn and powerbait but couldn't get it to react. She said the fish was very lethargic but did not seem ill. I thought Carps were warm water fish. The water temperature
Find two (or more) soft cow patties about the size of the carp.
My dad said he never tried the recipe but he had eaten carp and he thought the recipe was probably the best thing to do with Carp.
