What is the Best Carp Rig  to use ?

There are a great many different carp rigs  on the market today but what every one wants to know is what type of rigs are the best for catching carp?

Some carp anglers think they have worked out the best carp rig just  because they’ve caught plenty of carp with it but that doesn’t always mean that a given carp rig is best.

Just because you’ve had SOME success catching carp it doesn’t mean you can’t do better with another rig!

There are so many factors dictating whether or not your carp rig is a success and you should also consider that a different carp rig could be more effective in a different fishing situation.

Of course you shouldn’t loose site of the fact that many carp rigs will work at SOME point according to the scenario and it’s possible that some very poor rigs can sometimes work in the right conditions.  Poor carp fishing rigs could still work well enough if there are a lot of carp feeding at the same time. As the carp compete they become less choose and will snatch at anything so here your poor carp rig will still catch fish.

BUT surely you want to be catching more than the guy next to you?

Just remember though even the best rig in the world won’t work if there are no carp in the swim. The best carp rig in the world won’t catch carp if they’re just not feeding in that location!

Siamese Giant Carp
Fever by Jean-Francois Helias

While guiding clients interested in the Mekong Giant Catfish I often wet a line apart of their fishing spot for Siamese Giant Carps or Pla Caho (Catlocarpio siamensis). As you certainly know it is a rare and unique species of carp that only exists in Thai waters. It has also the particularity to be the the mother of all carps being the world s biggest carp species. Exceptional specimens in the wild can reach weights of 100 kg.

American Carp Adventures

Our location allows you to walk to your swim or you can let Jerry’s expert guiding service (over 20 years on this river) put you onto some of the biggest carp in the world.

ADVANCED CARPING ABROAD

“The big overseas waters are for me the ultimate in carp fishing challenges. Tackle and techniques are often tested to the limit on these inland seas and the fishing can be far from easy. But the rewards are plain for everyone to see. These waters not only hold some of the biggest carp in the world but in many cases they hold big fish in numbers and that s just the ones that we know about.”

Float Fishing for Crucian Carp

FLOAT FISHING FOR CRUCIAN CARP  

To catch crucians regularly a very carefully shotted light float rig is imperative the best floats being a fine-tipped antenna or a short narrow-diameter length of peacock quill fished in ‘mini-lift’ style. The object is to see those tiny bites for which crucians are renowned and which often barely register on the float tip (fig. 9B).

For this reason the single shot (a No. 1 BB or AA depending on float size) should be not more than 2 in from the hook. Try moving it even closer to 1 in away because sometimes this alone can make all the difference between seeing bites or not. The secret after casting in and tightening up so the float cocks is to wind down even further so the tip is just the merest ‘blimp’ on the surface. Strike the slightest movement.

When crucians are really feeding confidently denoted by clusters of small bubbles regularly rising to the surface the float might even lift completely out of the water and lie flat as the carp tills its head up after sucking up the bait and dislodges the shot. Or the tip will sink positively as the crucian characteristically runs along the bottom. Many more bites will barely register on the float so you need 10 hold the rod throughout and be eagle-eyed.

To stand a better chance of hilling bites from crafty crucians that just lie on the bottom blowing the bait in and out rig up a light antenna float with a dust shot 2-3 in from the hook with the bulk.

shot set at mid depth {fig. 9A). After carefully plumbing the swim adjust the float so the bait is literally a fraction above the bottom. As with the lift rig strike at the slightest movement on the float tip. Remember to keep loose feed or small balls of groundbait going in on the little-and-often principle and they might be encouraged lo feed all day. A ruse always worth trying when they are particularly dour is to gently wind the float in 6 in at a time which makes the bait lift upwards enticingly and fall gently down to the bottom again. Baits which are inherently buoyant like bread flake or csters or which are expected to move as worms work best when ‘twitching’ in this way to encourage bites.

Incidentally both these rigs work effectively for tench that are biting particularly shyly.

Wild Carp or King Carp

Wild Carp or King Carp?

What are the differences between wild carp and king carp? Where can you find the true wild fish?

Genetically there is in fact very little difference between wild carp and king carp. Stemming from the River Danube carp were transported around the world originally by the Romans. Over the years they have been selectively bred to grow faster and bigger firstly because they were an important food source and more recently for us to fish for.

Telling the difference between true wild carp and skinny commons is very difficult particularly as there is nothing to stop them breeding together. Wild carp generally have longer barbules a long dorsal fin and a large head. The body is almost chub-like in shape if the fish grow to bigger than about ten pounds then the chances are they are not true wild carp.

You definitely should try cooking with carp.  There are many great fish recipes online but do try not to smother your carp in sauce the first time you cook with it.  You can only make recipe decisions once you know the true taste of your fish.

Carp really became widespread in the British Isles as a food fish brought to this country from mainland Europe in the Middle Ages. So to find true wild carp now you should look for ancient ponds that have not been stocked with king carp. Estate lakes are your best bet for true wild carp although as more venues become stocked with king carp finding true wild carp will not be an easy task.

You can see the differences here between the wild carp (the smaller fish) and the king carp (background). The wild carp has a larger tail for its size and has an altogether leaner and longer body.
