    this creek is about 1ft to 3 ft deep and this is where we get our carp

    you can use a throw net but once they scatter it gets hard to catch them

    so we sein and get all the bait we need
    1st picture shows the creek the 2nd picture shows how we do it even my son can help me and the 3rd picture shows the little carp we use for bait:cool2::cool2::cool2::cool2:

    Thats the perfect size for me. I have only seen one that small in my life. We are gonna get a seine net and give it a shot. Our creek is alot like that one. I did find a new perch pond though. Went this mornin and caught about 40. Thanks and good work, Gus and Mini Gus(Chente)!:wink::smile2:

    Good way to save a lot of $$.

    That brings back some memories when my dad would take my brother and me to his secret creek to catch bait.Alwas had a good time doing it .

    Dont remember catching many carp but mainly gills,perch and golden shinners.

    Thanks Gus!

    I don't have a small creek like this so I have to catch them with a fishing pole. I would like to catch small ones so do I go to a smaller hook and use a single piece of corn or small piece of bread? Normally I have a hook big enough to hold 3 or 4 pieces of corn but have caught carp from 5lbs to over 20. Never anything small so I may end up having to use them as cut bait. ANY IDEAS, THANKS GUS

    i cut mine then marinade them in catfish attractant and put in fridge for 24hrs then go fishing with them i use the skin to help stay on the hook but always scale them first

    carp has alot of natural juices and fishing above a hole or log jam always works for me

    as far as smaller ones we fish in the middle of the day with r&r with corn and a small hook and bobber or on the bottom
    also small piece of worm works great but then you catch everything else in the river or pond
