Carp are alot of fun. Not acrobats or anything, but they'll put up a good fight. Go to and type in Carp, search, then hit "images". They are regarded as the "Poor mans bonefish". They like corn, bread, dough, shrimp, etc. Anything that is sorta smelly and will sit on the bottom. They find their food by "mudding", which is stirring up the ground debris and eating what ever is appealing to them that is stirred about. Edible? I've heard of people eating them, but mostly they are making fish balls or something. Not really good for filleting or anything. Also, don't eat the ones out of canals or sloughs. If you're going to eat them, try to eat the ones you catch from lakes or something.
