    welcome to the boc jose.


    as for carp. try 15lb line with a VERY small weight and fish with your favorite bait.but becarful carp are easily spooked.

    Welcome aboard! As far as carp are concerned, I like using light (about 8# test) line and small hooks. As for bait, you can use worms, corn, or any homemade concoction you can think of.

    Welcome Jose. For carp go with a light line. 8 to 12 test. Try a light slip sinker and a small hook. I like small trebles for Carp. I usually use canned sweet corn. Keep the drag on your reel fairly loose and when the Carp takes it tighten the drag and set the hook.

    Welcome to the BOC. Well i would normally use about 10 # test line and as for bait i have had them hit on worms, minnows. corn and any type of sweet homeade bait. Heres a little idea of what to use... flower water and any type of red soda.:wink:

    Welcome aboard to the boc. For carp fishing, a basic and easy rig to use is the bolt rig. You can use this rig for cats and carp and it is very effective. You can use light sinkers if you want but because of your setup i will recomend at least a 1 oz sinker with 2 oz being the most. Try to look the rig up on google. Just type in bolt rig and im sure you will find a guide on how to tie it if you dont already know how.

    Best of luck to you.

    Welcome Jose try and use light line i use 12lb Sufix very good line. Some even go lighter. The reason is that have very good eyes and spook easy. Some one mentioned the bolt rig that is one rig you can use. Try smaller hooks again they will see it and not take it for the most part. Another rig is the hair rig. It is basically a hook with a piece of line hanging out of it. The idea is when they suck the baited line without the hook they will get hooked as they blow it out. ( they taste it first spit it out then inhale again). Corn is one way to go you can also use bread sprinkled with some vanilla extract. There are a lot of things. Try and do a search here you will find a lot of information. Not sure if you every caught one but if you manage to catch a 20lb on up you will be the one getting hooked...............:wink: on carp fishing..... Good luck......
