Threw it back in? We are encouraged to toss the trash fish off to the side to die. Carp isn't something that people want in their lakes here. I really enjoyed watching the Rangers, NOAA or whomever they were, using a bow and arrow to pull the carp out of a local lake one day. Zip zip zip... then they just tossed them onto the ground to die. They are invasive and do something negative to the water that endangers the other fish.There was a pond near my home years ago loaded with carp. They were big, easy and fun to catch. I'd catch 'em and throw 'em back in. It was something to do.
I've tried to eat carp with ramps. The ramps overpowers the muddy taste of the carp, but I just still couldn't... Catfish still has a very distinct fish taste that I really love.wow, just let them die. I grew up eating them just the same as catfish. the all eat off the bottom.
