How to Catch a Carp for Beginners?

Every carp fisher wants to have the best possible experience while on the bank trying to get the hook into the carp’s mouth. It’s very important for one to know how to catch a carp and how one can properly care for a carp after you’ve caught him. Carp fishing can be terribly menacing for a beginner, but if you are serious and really want to catch some carp then take a look at these tips;

 

*Placing and locating a likely spot in a river is important. A large flat rock is a very perfect spot.*

 

 

Now, casting the line position of your rod in an angle around 45 to 50 degrees, determining upon the length of the hook.

 

*To attract the fish, throw a handful of corn*

 

Once the fish bites and tugs at your rod, you would feel the movement of the rod.

 

*Pull the rod in the opposite direction from that of the fish*

 

There would be a resistance by the fish, so ensure you tire the fish and then once you sense it has given up, reel it in. Casting Corn Method* This again involves the use of corn. But to start off, have a proper fishing pole set up. While setting it up, tying a hook at the end of the line, add a small weight to it.

 

*Have a can of creamed corn at your disposal and then disperse it into the water.*

 

In addition to this, before you dispense the hook in the water, attach two pieces of corn to it.

 

*The hook, line and rod should very still because a slight movement is sure to warn the carp*

 

Then if a carp has eaten the corn, which means it has been lured, immediately raise your fishing rod.

 

*With the rod in the skyward direction, hold it straight.*

 

Do not let the fish go off the hook by releasing the tension on the line. Whatever you do, you should not let the fish go around a stone or a rock or a log.

 

*Once again, reel the fish in when it eventually stops resisting. Exhaust Fish Method*

 

It’s a technique which simply involves tiring and exhausting the fish.

 

*So, after the initial strike let out as much as line as possible and then yank the line. This way it will be easier to pull in the fish as it is caught off guard then.*

 

Now, reel in steadily and slowly. Move the tip of the rod back and forth when the fish seems tired. This will take away all the ability of the fish to slash with its fins.

 

*Do not grab the fish by the mouth as it could tear the jaw of the fish.*

 

What ideally should be done is put a hand under the fish, in front of the tail and then the other one between the head and stomach
