|Basic Carp Fishing Pointers
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
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.
