OK. . . I saw this post on another site. I want to know what you all think.
Some people say Big Head and Asian Carp are only good for fertilizer.
Others say they are very good eating.
I have noticed many forum members with these fish in the last couple of weeks.
I grew up eating walleye and crappie. In my family it was against the rules to eat anything else because they just were not as good as walleye or crappie. Well, since these days of my childhood, I have definitely expanded. I like all types of fish now.
I often eat Talapia from the store. I don't see Talapia as being that much different from these carp. Can you filet these carp, and how do they taste? By the way, the best management tool for these "rough" fish may be to make them table fare. If people will eat them, their population will stay under control.
