Looks like a carp to me. We have tons of them in Florida. They sit along edge of the lake and don't scare very easily.
I've heard of people catching them on hook and line, but I've never done it. As an avid bass fisherman, I detest carp. 20+ years ago, the local government put a bunch of them in lakes that were overgrown with vegetation. Well, it worked as the carp ate all the grass... but they kept eating until there wasn't any underwater vegetation left and some lakes started getting murky. I understand the governement has since went back and tried to remove the carp, but they can't get rid of all of them.
