Best way to catch carp?

Based on the video context, I can provide some general tips for catching carp, although my expertise is primarily in bass fishing. Carp fishing often requires different techniques and equipment compared to bass fishing. However, I can offer some suggestions that may help you in your carp fishing endeavors.

First, it's important to note that carp are bottom feeders, so fishing close to the bottom is usually effective. One common method for carp fishing is using a technique called "bottom fishing." This involves using a heavy weight or sinker to keep your bait on the bottom of the water. Carp are known to feed on a variety of baits, including corn, bread, boilies, and worms. You can try using these baits on a hook and casting them out near areas where carp are known to frequent, such as near vegetation or structures in the water.

Another technique that can be effective for carp fishing is "chumming." Chumming involves throwing small amounts of bait into the water to attract the carp to your fishing area. This can be done with corn, bread crumbs, or specialized carp bait. Once you have attracted the carp to your area, you can then present your baited hook to them.

It's important to use appropriate tackle when targeting carp, as they can be strong and put up a good fight. A medium to heavy fishing rod and reel setup with strong line is recommended. Carp can be quite large, so it's important to have the right equipment to handle them.

Lastly, it's always a good idea to do some research on specific carp fishing techniques and strategies. There are many resources available, such as books, articles, and online forums, where you can learn more about carp fishing and get tips from experienced anglers.

Please note that my expertise is primarily in bass fishing, so I recommend consulting with experienced carp anglers or doing further research for more specific and detailed information on carp fishing techniques.

The Best Way To Catch Visible Cruising Bass by Intuitive Angling With Randy Blaukat and i'm throwing this thing out there and as soon as it hits the water what you want to do is you want to jerk it real fast about four or five feet across the surface of the water now what this does it does two different things if the fish is a long way away from the bait it will immediately get their tension and get it over there to them and if you've cast it close to the fish by jerking it real fast across the surface like that sometimes you can trigger a reaction strike do it for like i said two to four feet something like that then after that let the bait sink down probably you know 12 inches maybe two feet and keep an eye out for that fish coming over to it to look at it if you see that fish coming over to it pop your pop your worm where it jerks up like that and let it fall back down a lot of times that will trigger the strike and the third way to do it is simply cast out there where you think the fish is and simply let it go to the bottom once it hits the bottom pump it up hard off the bottom and then reel it straight to the surface and start jerking it across the surface sometimes if they're down low they'll follow that up and they'll hit it up high like that
Dog Days of Summer Fishing | How To | Bass Fishing by Bass Fishing Tips & Techniques by BassResource with worms, with jigs, with soft plastic stick baits. I like to fish soft plastic stick baits myself, they're nice and slow, has enticing fall. The idea here is to get these fish to come out underneath that canopy to attack that lure. And a lot of times, the more active fish are on those edges patrolling around looking for those bait fish. So you can catch a lot of those active fish along there. Crankbaits work really well if you can prevent them from getting snagged in those weeds. Spinnerbaits work really well as well. If probing the edges doesn't work, then, you've got to go and dig them out. And what I do is I'll take a jig or a plastic creature bait, for example, a Rage Tail. A Rage Bug for example works really well. Any kind of a beaver-style bait, small, compact, four or five-inch bait works really well because you want to get through the canopy. So anything that's got a lot of appendages on it or a big, long tail like a sickle tail worm or something can get hung up in those weeds and it won't get through. And you want to put a heavy weight on it, like a half ounce to an ounce and a half weight bullet sinker. And the idea here is you take it and you throw it up in the air and let it come down and it will punch through that canopy to where those fish are waiting. That's the key.
