Become an expert Carp fisherman
Carp fishing is both dreadful and irritating. The carp are smart enough to reject food that they donÂ’t trust. The feeling of watching the entire action, that gets over with the blink of an eye is great. ItÂ’s awesome when the reel is trembling noisily as you hang for dear life.
To keep the carp on the surface is easy. You just have to keep supplying the pellets, biscuits, chickpeas, bread and re-hydrated corn by attaching them to the hooks. Carp prefer bread. You can also use biscuits but soften them by dipping in water for around 2 minutes. Then for an hour, keep them in sealed sandwich bag. To find out which biscuit would be firm enough to cast, test different brands. Super gluing the pellet into the shank is another way to hook baits.
Let them be at ease, around the bait as they start feeding. This is an ideal situation for the fisherman as the carp stop being suspicious. For zig rigs too, this tactic is applicable. Once carp are feeding, drop the bait but not directly on them. Drop the bait away from the feeding area, and then slowly bring it closer. Keep on supplying food while the bait is hanging so the carp remain in the same position.
Tips to start
• For success use hair rig. Use food items that carp like. They will not come near if the food is not to their liking.
• Spider Line, 50 lbs test, can also be used. After that a leader material that fits the situation can be tried.
• Hook the hair loop but before that thread the bait on the baiting needle. To enhance the attractiveness of the bait, use foam dipped in a flavor.
• By straightening a long shank hook, make a baiting needle. First slide the bait on the shank and then onto the hair. Slide the bait using a needle.
• It is favorable to use a float as this helps in further distancing and easy identification of the location.
• The controller float rig is important. To the mainline of at least 3 feet length with a 10 lbs Drennan double strength, a leader can be attached with the help of a swivel. A low diameter mono will do if it is properly visible while it floats.
In the words of experts, the method in which the bait is introduced is what helps in catching the carp rather than the bait itself. If food is positioned in one place for a few days before the bait, the carp can be fooled. They will stop being suspicious. Their numbers will multiply too. So to be successful, try to be patient.

Carp Fishing
Most fishermen think that any rod and reel will bring in the carp of their dreams. What they do not realize is that carp, though once considered the trash of the lake, are sneaky creatures. If you are planning on fishing you might as well spend a few dollars extra and get the appropriate equipment for carp fishing. While some think it does not make a difference, carp fishing equipment can be the difference between a batch of carp fingers or hunger pains.
The rod used for carp fishing can vary with the different sizes of carp. In smaller lakes you may be looking at carp up to 15 pounds or so. In larger lakes carp may be as large as 30 pounds. Not every rod will allow you to wrestle a 30-pound carp, so choosing the rod carp fishing equipment should be based on the size of the carp. A 1 to 2 pound test curve rod will handle carp up to about 15 pounds. Anything over the 15-pound mark should probably use a rod with a test curve of about 3. The fishing distance also makes a difference when considering carp fishing equipment. The longer fishing distance requires a longer rod with the ability to handle a heavier weight because of the distance.
The reel also depends on the type of rod and distance that you will be casting. The reel must be compatible with the rod of course. That is something that in most cases can be purchased together to alleviate confusion. Most professional fishermen recommend a baitrunner type reel. This will help you hold on and keep from getting drug into the lake!
Another part of the carp fishing equipment is the fishing line. The rod and reel should give you a clue as to what size fishing line that you will need. Make sure that the line that you purchase is rated for the size fish that you are looking to catch. In most cases you can count on a 2-pound test curve rod to handle about a 10 pound fishing line. That is a rough estimate and the best way to determine is by your rod.
As for hooks there are a number of different sizes, shapes, colors and other bells. Most fishermen will build up a collection of carp fishing equipment that has a variety of hooks, weights and tools. Most professionals recommend that you go ahead and purchase a carp hook. They may cost a little more than a regular hook, but it will work better. When you are purchasing hooks make sure that you abide by the fishery laws. In some counties using barbed hook is prohibited.
