Great fun for the whole family!Theoretically you could catch 30lb+ monster carp on such a setup. In general they are played with just a few pounds of pressure.In reality though usually the strength of most knots break at about half the test rating of the line. In a snag free area I've often thought of an ultra lite setup with 20 pound braid for fun with the big ones. Nice job! flehan

I catch a few on ultralight tackle with 10 pound test braid. If you net them you should be able to land anything up to 10 pounds or so. The ones I lose are trying to land them when I forget my net.

I've always had good luck using corn for bait. I've landed a lot of smaller channels on it, too.
