Glad 5 or 6 of them made it to the cooler. How are they to eat? Did they just jump in? Crazy Carps....

Ever eat them? I'd probably eat one of those before the Mekong River catfish that's all over the place now. Plenty of websites out there with recipes now.

I've had people tell me they are very good to eat. I tried it once. Nice white meat but really soft, kinda mushy. I wasn't a fan..

My brother lives on a sandpit next to the Platte River, these got in during a high water event. This morning there was a lightning strike that discombobulated the silver craps. We netted, gaffed and shot 3-4000 lbs of these slim monsters.

Nice

can you catch them on rod and reel? At that size looks like they would put up a nice fight

We snag them trolling from time to time, actually got one the day before while taking the nephews and kids around the lake. They take off like a tuna when hooked. No limits on them, invasive species.
