    I don't think you can catch them like you do game fish. You have to either throw in a net or make some noise and they jump in the boat with you. I don't think you are going to get busted for fishing without a license....and since it is illegal to throw them back in the water many people don't have any choice but to go "fishing" for them. lol

    Asian Carp vs. Commercial Fishermen: 2.5M lbs now out of Illinois | WGN-TV
    15k pounds of carp in a day is a lot of fish to be catching (and that's half of what they were catching when they first started).

    Don't think I have ever tried that one.

    My father's side of the family was from Oregon (Bend) and I loved the smoked salmon up there. We would make trips to Depoe Bay to a smoke house that had some of the best d*mn smoked salmon I have ever had and we would pick up some of the salt water taffy as well.

    I have caught carp with rod and reel, mostly in lakes in southern Europe, Croatia, and Portugal. I use worms or corn as bait. I like fishing but I'm not a professional, carp can give a good fight but not a special good eating fish imho. I made spicy soup out of them, taste is not bad but it helps with spices haha. Wry never compare carp with smoked salmon, it same as compare pig ears with beef tenderloin. Sidenote, a local guy from Zamboangita caught a yellowfin tuna 138 kg with rod and reel using live bait, it took him 4 hours to fight the fish, I guess it's the biggest tuna caught in the Philippines this year on rod and reel. His name is Owen Vasquez he caught the fish on Amangan reef like 2 hours in a boat from Zamboanguita. I caught a tangigue (Spanish mackerel) on the west coast of Negros 112 cm and around 10 kg hope my upload succeeded

    For a salted fish taste? Try standing outside the women's bathroom at Why Not.

    Yes, but I was only in there to give out a free sample of sausage and special sauce.

    I like 'Daddy's Sauce' - can you get it here OR perhaps it is only white sauce.

    I will try that and thanks for the suggestion Mr W. I am amazed how helpful you are to us all (especially when you are in a good mood and not cussing) and we must be eternally grateful. :smile:

    But I really was trying to find out where to buy smoked salmon locally - it is found in many local restaurants so I wonder where they get it from.

    Umm...sure, ask the "lady's" with the big hands and Adam's apples standing outside the women's bathroom at Why Not. (You can find pretty much anything you want outside the women's bathroom at Why Not.)

    Try KRI.

    I buy smoked salmon at Belcris in Dumaguete, love it, but it is farmed Norweigan salmon, can't find wild salmon. I read it's not good for your health, too many toxins, but I like it too much, so from time to time I just don't care. Try also smoked bangus, it's bone free and surprising good and cheap, 300 pesos a kilo, 1 pice around 300 gram and maybe not that many toxins
