Hey! Experienced Carp angler from the UK in needs your help!!

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Carp enthusiasts!

I'm new to the Dallas area but not to Carp fishing. I'm not looking to take short cuts and steal peoples spots as I'm all about putting in the time-on-water to find honey my own holes, but I am looking for some advise on what lakes to fish in and around North TX, OK, AK, and basically anywhere that is within a 1-7 hour drive from Dallas. Ideally, I'm looking for lakes that house big old Chunks (trophies) that will tear my arm off when playing and will work my biceps when posing for pics!

I'm deadly serious and passionate about this sport - I've just purchased 3x SK3's and 3x SK4's, and every other bit tackle, equipment, luggage and bait that will allow to camp out for weeks at a time. I'll be forever in your debt if you can help me feed my addiction and get on fish. Thank you.

P.S. I'm not a fan of heavy foot traffic when I fish - I'd prefer to be in the middle of know where, of the beaten track.

P.S. P.S. I'd like to take this opportunity to plug Big Carp Tackle in OK for their easy to use online store, broad variety of stock, and there speedy delivery of orders. 

Thanks,

Daniel "Chunk Hunter" Nash

Welcome to CAG.  Might I suggest that you get a membership in CAG?  I have found that there are several things that are of benefit- Friends that you meet on the bank and share your carp stories (embellished, of course), Food (a necessary item to fuel the body for hauling in those big carp), Fun (need I say anymore?).

I have used BCT in OK and found them to be great folks.

Cheers!

Welcome, Daniel. Quite a few carp anglers near Austin, TX, and I'm sure some of them have knowledge about Dallas. Check those fellows on Facebook (most of them are CAG members):

Try to catch a big buffalo, a species you're not going to find in Europe, that can be caught on usual carp rigs & bait.

Thanks guys. I've just purchased my CAG membership and will explore the CAG members section in more detail later today. 

Quick question - should I be concerned about Gators on lake fork if I'm camping on the bank for 5 nights? I leave Wednesday afternoon and plan to do a long session in a remote spot I've picked out. Any pointers to ensure my safety would be gratefully received. Thanks. 

Jerome - Big Buff on my radar for sure!!

I've took at Lady Bird Lake but I'm put off by the amount of hikes/bike paths that are along the bank. I'm guessing there is a ton of foot traffic. Also, I'm going to be spoding out gallons of bird feed and hemp and don't want to be interrupted by boats etc. Are there any secluded spots or parks on the lake or along that stretch that I should be looking at?
