If you are just contemplating starting carp fishing, do not get caught up in all the hype. Carp fishing today is a huge business but you do not need all the latest designer gear to catch carp. Most of it is designed to catch the angler rather than the fish.
You already have the two most important things to be successful
your eyes and your ears.
Unless you are fishing an overstocked commercial lake the first thing you have to do is find your carp, there is an old saying that one hour in the right spot is worth a day in the wrong one.
Dawn and dusk are magical times of the day make sure to be alert and watching the water and more often than not the carp will show you where they are, if they are showing at the other end of the lake, MOVE.

Do you go fishing? Do you eat what you catch?At this time of year I just love to catch big catfish out of the local rivers and I turn them into delicious deep fried catfish nuggets. With homemade slaw, home fries, and my delicious homemade hush-puppies you have a meal you won't soon forget.
