Crap fishing tips

Frustrating as it is, carp fishing is awesome. Carp are really good at sucking in and blowing out suspicious baits. It‚’s such an excitement to see the whole action in a fraction of a second as you hang on for dear life while the reel is trembling with a loud noise.
Carp happily devour on the surface as long as you keep the pellets, biscuits, chic peas, bread, and re-hydrated corn coming in, and these are inexpensive baits as well. Just attach them to the hooks, most preferably the bread. Have the biscuits softened by dipping it in the water for about 2 minutes, then, place them in a sealed sandwich bag for about an hour. Since different brands have different textures, just experiment to know which is firm enough to cast. Another way to hook baits is super gluing the pellet into the shank.
Once they get into feeding, let them feel comfortable around the bait. This gives more opportunity for the fisherman since they begin to not feel picky. This tactic can be useful for zig rigs.
As soon as they’re feeding, cast the bait but make sure not to drop the bait directly onto the feeding carp. Cast away from the feeding area then slowly draw it in position. While the bait is till hanging, keep the food coming in so as to keep the carp from going away.
How to Set-Up?
• Use a hair rig to increase your chance of catching. As carp taste food first, if they don’t like the taste, they won’t come near it.
• You may also use a Spider Line, 50 lbs test, then use a leader material that fits the situation.
• Thread the bait on the baiting needle and hook the hair loop. You may also use foam dipped in a flavor as this enhances the attractiveness of the bait.
• Also make a baiting needle by just straightening a long shank hook. Slide the bait on the shank, then slide the bait from the needle onto the hair.
• Using a float is also an advantage because it adds weight for further distancing and the location is easily identified.
• Don’t forget the controller float rig. A leader can be used which is attached to the swivel to its mainline of at least 3 feet length with a 10lbs Drennan double strength. A low diameter mono will do just as long as it floats well enough for visibility.
As experts say, it is not the bait that catches the carp but the method in which the bait is introduced. Pre-bait everyday, in one spot for a few days. This makes the carp think that there is a regular source of food for them and by ‚“word of mouth‚” there‚’ll soon be a school of fish around. Just be patient and it will all work.

Carp - Learn the facts on this fish that can help you catch the trophies
One of the most common anglers' catches is the carp, a freshwater fish of the family Cyprinidae, counting in America with many devoted enthusiasts. The best-known species of carp in North America is the common carp (Cyprinus carpio), although the history of this fish comes from Europe.
In the Middle Ages, carp were spread by monks for food throughout the Old Continent; from there this tradition was exported worldwide in the 15th century, although the popularity of carp remained intact until the present. In Europe, carp have been the most popular fish over the last 20 years, becoming a billion-dollar industry within the extremely competitive fishing tackle market.
In the United States, it was initially considered just one of the exotic species not native to North America, arriving just by accident. In fact, it is said that actual carp are descended from fish illegally introduced by unauthorized persons. The fact is that before the 20th century native North American fish were viewed as vital natural resources, harvested commercially by the millions of pounds.
Harvesting declined stocks of river and lake fishes, the population was expanding, and the U.S. Congress appointed the US Fish Commission to oversee the nation's fisheries interests, during 1871, beginning the introduction of carp in America. Carp promised a great return in limited waters, and the commission imported 345 carp from German aqua-culturists.
Commercial production of carp began in the 1900s, and the decade after the World War II, annual carp catches reached 36 million pounds. Actually, carp production continues but for anglers carp is just a sport fish, not only in the United States, but also in most nations around the world, while many restaurants, hotels and resorts keep serving carp on the menu.
However, in a few regions carp are considered a pest that must be killed, whether sport or not, because of their attributes allowing them to be an invasive species on new ecosystems, with serious negative effects for both native fauna and the local ecosystem. Commercially speaking, this was beneficial from the economy point of view.
Carp were shipped by rail to markets during many decades serving as an important food source for the growing population, and prestigious restaurants, like the Waldorf and Astoria, popularized dishes such as "Carp in Rhine Wine Sauce". After the war and with the advent of refrigeration, carp popularity took new highs.
Carp are considered signs of good fortune in Asian countries; they are part of the traditional Christmas Eve dishes in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. They are also a competitive prize for international anglers looking for fun trying to catch the biggest because, contrary to other countries, they are not considered to be good for eating in North America.
There are a large number of carp types, among the most popular are Carp bream (Abramis brama), Bighead carp (Aristichthys nobilis), Carnatic carp (Barbodes carnaticus), Crucian carp (Carassius carassius), Prussian carp (Carassius gibelio) and the Goldfish (Carassius auratus).
There is a website that has great information on most species of freshwater fish. It has details that pertain to each species of fish such as habitat, spawning, eating habits, the best lures and baits and more, the website is called: Fishing Stringer, and can be found at this url:
