Not to get off the subject, but from what I understand, if you smoke a Carp it isn't too bad. Smoked Cart is something that some people really like, although I am not sure exactly why. I tried it once, and I didn't particularly care for it, but maybe it is just my taste buds that are strange. Apparently a lot of people, at least people from around the Milwaukee area, seem to think smoked Carp is something special. A lot of fishermen from Milwaukee come out this way all the time, and many of them will actually buy Carp from you if you happen to have caught some.
Personally, I don't care for the fishing around here, it isn't very good and if you do happen to catch some you will find they are few and far in between. We used to have a lot of Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, Bullhead, Catfish, Walleye, Perch, Pike and Trout. There were some others too, but those were the main ones, at least locally. I like Perch and Trout about the best, but we don't really have any Trout locally anymore. When I was a kid there were local few streams where you could catch a few Trout, mostly Brown Trout, not so much Rainbow Trout. Now you can only find Trout further north of here. Actually, the fishing is much better farther north of here. The local streams, rivers and lakes, have been fished to death over the years so the local fishing isn't very good anymore. I quit fishing several years ago, I figured it was a lost cause. I have a couple buddies that love to fish and they go to Canada every year on a fishing trip. They have asked me to go with them several times, but I guess I just don't care enough about it to bother going anymore. I would rather go play golf.
