The reason is that the fish is called Carp and has for years been berated disclaimed and rejected by fishermen and Cooks a like because it has been classified As a rough fish. Just to prove this Point i asked around the office for a favorite recipe for preparing Carp. The Best suggestion was put the Carp on a Plank stick it in the oven and bake it for three hours at 350 degrees. Take it out of the oven throw the Carp away and eat the Plank. That May be a Good example of what most people think of the Carp but it s hardly a True assessment of the food value and fighting ability of the fish. The Carp is raised commercially in Many countries for food and also provides a Good commercial fishing species in some a was of the United states. At the Iowa conservation commission s fish hatchery at spirit Lake the state is involved in a Carp eradication most caught in state Gill nets Are quickly snapped up by commercial fisheries and wholesale food outlets at five cents per Pound. The Carp was originally indigenous to Asia. It was imported to Europe and then brought from Europe to this country inl877. It now abounds in practically every state. The average Carp will Range from one to five Orsi pounds but catches of from 15 to 25 pounds Are not uncommon and even weights As High As 55 pounds Nave been recorded in the u. S. The Carp is highly prolific and a female weighing 20 pounds May produce As Many As to million eggs in one spawning sea son. One of the characteristics of the Carp is that it has no Teeth in its Mouth but has Teeth or Grinders on each Side of its Throat. While truly omnivorous the Carp usually leans More toward being a vegetarian. The method for taking Carp is a matter of Choice arid leaves the door wide open to All fishermen. The Carp has become a pleasant Pursuit for the Bow and a Row Fisherman but can be equally challenging for the Fly Rod Man. However taken a 20-Pound Carp is going to put up quite a fight. When using a Hook and line it is preferable to use an extremely Small Hook baited Viii Doug balls or a piece of partly cooked vegetable. Likely spots to find Carp besides the Cedar Are on Sandy b of Tom Waters and the fish May be attracted to the area by baiting it with chopped vegetables. The Carp Mouths the bait when taking it so a foot or More of Slack line should be allowed to permit the fish to get a Good bite on the bait. Then set the Hook and you re in business once you have your Carp it takes Little Effort to make it a Fine table fare. Skin the fish and clean it. Put it on its Side and score All of the Way to the Backbone about every one eighth of an Inch the length of the fish. Do the same thing to the other Side. Then Cut the fish into one Inch steaks Rollin mixture of beaten eggs and milk and shake in a bag of seasoned Corn meal and crushed Corn flakes.
