Ant the trick too carp is to brine (even add brown sugar too the brine as much as 50/50 unless you get slime on them when done then reduce the sugar) them for a few days (gets red of the excess moisture and firms the fish flesh to make them edible) leave them for a day for the salt to stabilise then smoke them or fry them from what I hear they are prity good (and this was coming from someone in the states
I would eat any perch I can get they are great
after geting one by accident (while after trout) I was upset the fight scared the trout off and it was gut hooked (I wanted my fly back
) so I took it home and expected some inedable horror but was plesently suprised and would eat it over trout anyday!
while sea fishing I do it for food I wont eat baracouda, or red cod as most of the ones I have got before have had worms in the flesh (I dont even look now they go strait back). The best ones too get are Kahawai (they fight real hard and can be fun on a fly rod
), trumpeter, blue cod, and butter fish
Salmon here are fairly bland for land locked I have yet to get one from the sea and hear they are better eating
Eel, I have eaten it and would again, around where I fish there is a huge export (for europe) of smoked eel. in the evening the river bed is covered with them, there are even eels out during the day sometimes (this is another one you need to dry abit and remove the kidney or they will taste like s#*t)
Trout, I prefur to take a fish under 5lb (between 1lb and 5lb as large fish are where the good genes are and will produce better fry for future seasons) unless it wont survive.the most I have taken in one season is 5 fish, and in 1 day 1 fish. The limit bag where I fish is 2 per day and in some waters there is a maximum length to protect the best fish.
