Beautiful fish man, I was never good at carp fishing besides fall season. In the fall the leaves begin to drop on the lake and the carp come up to  the surface to eat the leaves so I just bait up with leaves. Strange method of fishing but it works.

I used to catch them on pieces of hard salami when I was at school in the Erie Canal had to change my strategies when I came back home though, if it produces fish nothing strange about it!

I catch them on a flyrod using little crawdad imitations,up in shallow water when they're mudding,right in front of their face presentation,biggest ever was a 54" monster in the ST Marys R on the US Canada border.None get released,strictly catch and kill,feed the 'coons or turtles.
