Well for the first time I actually went out fishing for carp. I have caught a couple when catfishing before but never actually went just looking for carp. I had been looking for little tips on here and compiled them and gave it a try today. I used my normal rigging for catfishing...egg sinker...bead..barrell swivel...leader....hook. I used a size 4 eagle claw hook with corn on it. I had not a single bite over about a 2 hour span...but my buddy caught his first carp ever which weighed about 3-5 lbs. It was a good time for him on his light bass tackle that we were using. If anyone has any tips on what we might do I would greatly appreciate it. We are fishign in a small river in Indiana....it's about fifty yards wide and about 6-7 ft deep at this hole I would guess.
