So you are living off the land, you are hungry, have a boat and want to fish, but don't have anything to use for bait, tackle or rod.
No Problem....

best recipe for carp:

seasonal well.
place on cedar board
back on low heat for several hours
throw away fish
eat board.

they're big fish, but not even worth the effort of trying to clean/eat.

muddy, bony, dirty bottom feeders, typically.

only time i had carp that was palatable was after they'd been in a barrel of clean water for a day or so.

even then, extremely 'fishy'-tasting. (??)

You can catch some fish in a number of ways. Make a trap with sticks in the shallows among reeds. Some species of fish come into the shore in the early mornings and evenings to feed on insects and other amphibians that live amongst those plants.. Get some sticks or rocks and build a coral. Make a Q shape the opening being the dash of the q This will take time and patience, you will have to try a number of spots. The idea is the fish will enter your coral to look for food and you can literally make your way to your coral and catch them in the shallow coral you have made. Keep in mind this pond will have to be somewhat large, and you will have to block the opening before you attempt to grab them. You can obviously find and add bait to your coral to entice them in.

You can make other more elaborate traps as well with sticks, or reeds. But they require bait. You will make an cylinder, with one end closed, the other with a small opening with sticks going into the trap. The idea being the fish can swim in, but not out.

Again these traps need bait and have to be placed some where the fish can get in.


You can also catch some fish with simply a hook and some string. It all takes patience, most places you find fish you can also find the food they are eating. Nothing works better to catch a fish than the food they are used to eating. They are less cautious about it and more willing to take it if they are hungry. This is why certain lures, flies and bait work better in some lakes, rivers, streams and ponds than others.

As well, some fish will literally eat anything, people used to catch fish with nothing but a stick, some kind of line, and a hook alone.

You really have to know what you're doing. Cleaning and cooking Carp is an art!

Not trying to sound like a smart a&&. But it is very good when done right. Trust me, this redneck takes eatin' seriously.

Yup... and there are those who would agree with you that they taste just fine. It's those pesky Y-bones that are the problem, just like a pike has.
