    Just gotta go out and try to locate them. Guys that target them successfully have tight lips and will never give out specific areas. Catch and release is the only way to go.

    Good luck getting past the brick in front of the mouth.. get a pair of binoculars and spend an hour or two at sunset or sunrise glassing as much of the bays, jetty ends, docks, channels, etc as you possibly can, look for birds, crashing fish, color spots, nervous bait, blah blah blah.. (gets on soap box) Just remember that corvs are one of the most fragile, pansy azz fish our waters have. If you are going to release them, keep them in the water for the release and hook removal if at all possible. If you hook them badly, rip the jaw apart getting your lure back, bounce them against the rocks, or let them thrash against the cement or wood dock somewhere, they are almost as good as dead.. they have mild, flaky meat that shouldn't go to waste. It does our sport no service at all for us to put a fish through being caught only to be killed for no reason. (Gets off soap box)..

    Hey Buddha, if you are a great chef, tell us how to make carp edible, that is a real culinary challenge. I would catch gobs of those things if only I could find a good way to cook them. I doubt many of you on this board have a problem with people keeping carp. My best attempts involve lots of chili, cumin, garlic and lime and still not that great.. I would say mackerel is delicious compared to carp. But they eat carp in Asia and other parts of the world. .

    No idiot jokes from the peanut gallery about cooking the carp on a board and eating the board, like I have not heard that before.

    In asia and europe, the carp are usually taken from clear water reservoirs so the meat does not taste nasty, but instead has a clean taste. Also the type of carp eaten is different in asia. Where as we have the common carp, which is an invasive species from Europe, the Asian bighead and silver carp are not bottom feeders. The common carp is a bottom feeder and muddies the water. The asian carp feed off of algae and plankton, so are very low in mercury......You're looking to cook the wrong type of carp. Let nature do its work and feed it to your garden. I promise the soil and your herbs, veggies, and fruits will love it.

    Sardine size maybe 5" we call those mini mack's. Although if your slow trolling for YT La Jolla style at about 3 knots then you wanna use full size with a big 5/0-7/0 live bait hook.
