    my parents once cooked up a carp. i was shoveling it in when they told me. i admit, it tasted just like every other white fish i've eaten.

    boney? nope..black bass is bonier IIRC.

    i used to catch them on rice crispy treats. we would wear full camo and stalk them and look for the tail action..quick quiet cast and they are a handfull on lighter equipment. i almost broke a brandnew GLoomis rod with one..

    There is a way to filet carp that gets the oil to run out of it, it more or less is done by cubeing the filets. Once you get them cut in cubes it will allow some of the oil to drain out. I have eaten carp at some places where it is cubed and with a Tabasco like hot sauce they are pretty tasty.
