Hey guys! I just started getting into carp fishing and I am looking for some new spots in north carolina to fish. I know of paylakes of course but I have never fished in those. A week or so ago I caught a 14.5 common carp out of the haw river, and I am looking for some tips to be able to catch more of them when I go, but also during the day because they do not bite much then. I caught this fish around 7:00 to 7:30 with a panko, instant grits, R&W strawberry butternut juice, and cream corn pack bait with a hair rig with a fake piece of pop-up corn. Thanks for reading! Leave any tips or ideas you have for how to catch more and where I can go for that. - Jack
Does anybody have any tips for catching buffalo on Lake Wylie? I live about 30 minutes from the lake and I fish it for carp all the time. I've caught commons, grass carp, and even a couple mirrors but I have never caught a buff. Does anybody have any tips for buff fishing on Wylie? Location, Bait up technique, bait and rig used? Thanks!
I have fished hard each weekend for the last three weekends expecting the carp to be on their fall feeding spell but have only landed a few 1-3 pound fish (the smallest I've ever caught and seen from this lake). I'm on a 42 acre lake that I've been fishing for 2 years (using exclusively sweet corn until now by the way). It has tons of different structures and features, deepest spot is 47 feet with most of the lake being 15 feet or more, I've fished from 64 F to 58 F this fall so far, the weather has been from stormy to sunny and everything in between, it doesn't have that many carp in it with the most I've had in a weekend being 8 fish and can't surpass it, have tried fishing multiple spots, tried sweet corn, odyssey xxx boilies, white pop ups, and a combination of them, I've fished multiple depths ranging from 3-20 feet, I'm just running your average safety lead clip system with anti tangle sleeves on both ends, 20 lb braid for mainline and leader (I'm sure it's not tangles I've tested it a lot), I've been running a hair rig with a size 4 humpback style hook that's very sharp. The only thing I've been doing differently than last year is I haven't been pre baiting my spot with sweet corn a week in advance. Do you guys think that's the problem. Any advice would be greatly appreciated 'cause I'm struggling here.
