My friend came out with me for his first carp outing, hits back to back carp in the mid twenties.

First one 26 lbs, caught on one of my 16mm sweet dream boilies.

Second one 23 lbs, also on sweet dream, but 26mm. Somewhat of a muddler.

Think he may be hooked...


PB common = 38.5 lbs
PB mirror = 22.5 lbs
PB buff = 26 lbs

There has to be a thread here somewhere - what does one need to get starting carp fishing?

Here's one, the Carp Fishing FAQ at the top of the Rough Fish section: https://texasfishingforum.com/forum...glossary-euro-techniques-etc#Post3797276
If you'd rather watch a video than read here's an excellent video to get you started:



Keep an eye out for when we post about our next fish-in if you'd like to join us and see everything in person! Learning from someone directly is much easier than learning on your own. cheers


Catch and release. The dream - to catch one of every species of Freshwater fish in our great state! If only I can resist Carp...
