    I've caught them in the morning and at night, but do they "bite" all day or is one time better than other ? -Thanks

    Kyron,

    I don't know either...I'm waiting on an answer myself....I remember my Grandfather used to fish during the daytime on the Tombigbee river over a baited hole and caught a lot, but I don't know much about carp and their movements....Most of the talk I hear about is to do with night.....Dwight

    I think it's when ever you have time to sit down next to the water. :big_smile:

    I've caught them at all times of day.

    I have caught carp all times of day, most productive were late morning, or early evening, I like to use canned corn, or a crawler can be real productive also.

    Id have to agree with Aaron. I ve caught them in all times of day, but 2 hours before sunset, until a half an hour after the sunset, is when Ive caught the most. Usually just corn on a small hook, a little chumming, no weights, and a really good rod holder!:wink:

    I have caught carp all times of the day, but the best times seems to be in the morning.

    For me the best time is in the morning. With the bread or corn.

    fishing evening with dough balls. (corn syrup, wheaties, vanilla,) use some bread as chumming will bring them into the area your fishing. lot of good times doing this in ponds, and backwaters.
