Myself and Rick (Cat Yakker) caught some pretty nice Carp fishing between cold fronts. Fish were caught using corn. All fish were released to fight again! Getting in on some wintertime Carp action. It just don't get any better! fish

Thanks, Pot licker. For pure fight on a light spinning rod, you just can't beat Carp. I grew up thinking they were trash fish, although fun to catch. When I was stationed in England in 1990, I learned to love the lowly Carp as a true game fish. Those Brits love their Carp more than us Americans love our Bass and Trout. Thanks to Banker for great experiences on the water this past week. Like he says "it just don't get any better".

Great catches and great fun, I'm sure. I love to see people's trips on here. Tight lines!


New to angling. Catch and release. The dream - to catch at least one of every species in our great state (if I can manage to resist carp)!

Thanks Curtis for the reply! cheers I have caught plenty of Carp in the creeks while fishing for the sunnies using worms. The Carp were all not that big. 2 to 5 pound range! Hope you catch one on the fly! thumb

Nice fish. You guys are having a super year for catching some super carp. Are you chumming for them? If so what are you using?



Side Note: What has been the biggest you all have caught this year so far?

Thanks Gitter for the reply! cheers We are simply throwing out can corn. Seems to be working pretty good. dance2 The biggest Carp caught this year has been 25 and a half pounds. We have also caught several in the 20 pound range. Plenty in the 15 to 20 range and a very few under 10 pounds. hooked
