back in the day carp were served as a delicacy at some of the finer hotels in new york,or so i've read,heard from some folks that marinating in buttermilk....and cutting out the (mud vein?) breading and fried those folks say they taste good. Ol' carp probably get a bad name from sucking food from the bottom....but dang catfish got that bad rap too,and man i love me some catfish! one thing is for true a big carp fights hard,may not be a "gamefish"but they tug the line and that is a great sportfish!.....just call them "bugle mouth bass"!
