    Nice carp Ryan. Welcome to the USCA forum. I just started carp fishing this spring. Ordered some gear during the winter. Between the folks on here and Luke on "Catfish and Carp", I can give all the credit about what I know. I was somewhat addicted to catfishing but always like a good fighter.

    I've fished for Carp for 55 years. Use my own Dough Bait on Treble Hook, no weight, use Medium Action Rods with 12# Test Mono Line, set in Rod Holder wait for them to take the Bait. Oh we eat them.
