Landon Foster also in the picture. Dear Lord, Joker. What are you feeding those things? Not the best eating though.
Them carp is good eatin'.
I beg to differ kooky but ive found either you like them or hate them. Good sized fish though.
It smells like microwaved homeless people in here.
It was almost as big as Jordan Swindle's lol
Same fish. Just how big Swindle is.
haha. . . probably true. . .
I was being facetious. Carp is a nasty, filthy fish.
2 observations about Swindle:
1). It's probably 102 degrees and the dude is wearing Jeans and looking cool! 102 ain't nothin in Florida.
2). I'd hate to be a fishing pole because those two mitts wrapped around it make it look like a toothpick. Kid has some monstrous hands.
Haha freakin Internet facetiousness got me...
I dont like Carp but have been told that those caught out of farm ponds if cleaned right are edible. In Europe and the far east they are considered a good food fish. I used to fish below the wickets in the Ohio river on the Indiana side from Louisville for Sauger. When they would shut the water coming through the wickets down carp and other fish would get trapped in pools below the wickets. The Vietnamese would come in and take out wash tubs full of carp. I wouldnt eat any fish out of the Ohio river but the Vietnamese seemed to love them.
Fish is big here, and compared to the rivers they get their fish from here the Ohio is probably not so bad!
What's the life expectancy rate there?
somewhere slightly north of 70 I believe, which surprised me, there's a lot of poverty and traffic accidents, I thought it would be in the 60s!
We've got Carp so big in the lake at the Country Club back home that we used to just fish em out with fishing nets. They're slow and dumb so its no problem.
Exactly. We used to canoe lakes and schools of them would skim the top of the water right next to the boats. We used to whack'em with the paddles just for fun. Never really stopped them, though.
I'd eat them for survival, but for eating there are other fish in the sea.
