    ya might wanna go a little smaller on the carp. I personally wouldn't use one over two pounds. Only the big flathead will bite on a carp, even two pounds. But I perfer even smaller bait, so I won't pass up all the smaller fish too. A ten pounder more than likely won't bite on a two pound carp. But a trophy flathead will bite on a six inch bluegill. Hope this helps.
