How many are there fisherman who target carp? If there are at least 5, we will through in the contest. Serious.

I'd be willing to give it a go. its just a matter of timing for me 'cause my wife and i just had twins. so if it's stretched over a long enough period (say about a week or more)I'd be in.

With 2 new babies my fishing time is limited

well i went fishing in the sierras in the lower owens river and my friend and i were just watching the carp jump so we threw in and my friend cought a 4 pound carp and right after i hooked on to a huge carp i didnt get to bring him in cuz he was just rippin my line out and it just wouldnt tire out and then it was about to spool me and then my line snapped

I have a fair bit of experience Carp fishing. Fished for them in the UK and Southern California and had lots up to 35lb. I'd love to get together with some other carp fishing enthusiasts to 'ave a go at some large common Carp.

I'm in Maple Ridge and contemplating Pitt Lake (as its close to me) but anywhere in Poco area would suffice.

Email brightarc@shaw.ca if your interested in a derby

How big do the carp get in this area? Is using corn as bait banned?

you can use any bait you like just no chumming allowed

whats "chumming" ?
geoff

you are not allowed to use anything else besides what is on the hook - no extra bait or scent in the fishing area.

you mean like tossing a bunch of worms to attract fish?
craftycarper

Or heavy groundbaiting with mashed up bread laced with strawberry flavoured corn ;-) A very useful way to attract and keep carp in the area for a long time.

other good "smelly" baits for Carp would be cheesepaste, aniseed soaked tiger nuts or hair rigged fishmeal boilies.

If you want some tips on rigging for Carp drop me an email

where do you usually carp fish?
craftycarper

Haven't fished anywhere in BC but fished for Carp in UK and California.
Still hoping for some good local advice on local lakes in Maple Ridge area to Carp fish ??????

as said earlier you are not allowed to use ground bait
so no throwing anything in the water except your hook and line
I know this is allowed in the U K but this is B C
Check out page 9 in the regs on chumming
