    Ii like to use ultrlite for carp fishing. Have a 71/2 foot ultralite rod with a reel spooled with 4 lb test. We use no weight and a single hook (not Treble). Like to use homemade carp bait or wheaties. My largest is 16 lbs and my wife's is 17 pounds. We have caught many over 10. The reel has to have a good drag that doesn't hang up. It's a blast. Have only lost one fish by getting in hurry.

    i use a 3 way swivel. so i can rig two lines. i put one craft bead on each hook and melt it in place. so that when my pack back falls away. they suckk the bead and run.

    Mostly fish an ultra light Carolina rig, sometimes with a hair rigged hook. Normally, when the hook is hair rigged, the carp is always hooked in the lip. Makes for easier unhooking and no damage to the fish. Thus, he is safely released.
