  8. Do you have open water, and can you catch carp this time of year on Long Island?
  9. I came from a match fishing back round. I started "carp fishing" in 2001 2002. Honestly, I do it bc I just kinda got all the gear and was crazy about it. The style comes in handy on certain lakes but I catch more fish with my older method and its less gear. I dont have to haul a lot of crap. My catch rate isn't as great. But these are my new toys that I just got
  10. Yea its tough at first. You have to see the action of the longer bolognese rods. They play the fish way better than our carp rods. so it makes it easier. less prone as well for the hook to come out of the fishes mouth. we used to fish with those 16 ft rods in rivers by my house in italy. Over hanging trees and some swims were very tight. I remember back in 97 when I was young I brought my 6 ft rods to italy. I went to a trout "pay lake" and there was a italian fishing team practicing for the championships. I remember when they saw my rods they started laughing. They dont use 6 footers unless they are bass fishing or using artificial lures like a spinner for trout. But again, all this good tackle, but nowhere to fish. If you guys ever get a chance to fish in europe, its two different worlds. These guys are on a different level. Especially match fishing. Just how they dress, it makes them seem more important. I remember MR.BIG saying the same thing when he went to europe. You can bring whatever flavours you have, pack bait, checking the water temp, following all the rules of a pay laker or euro carper, when you are next to a match fishermen, get ready to have your ANGUS peppered.
  11. Take a ride with me as I talk about a couple places to get carp goodies. If you havent subscribed yet its free to do so and really helps the channel grow and get out there. Thanks for watching
  12. Wow, that's a lot of rod! It must be tough netting a carp with a rod that long when you are by yourself.
  13. I have trabucco rods that I purchased in italy. I have 5 of them. Two are for trout. specific for certain european styles. My other three tele's are for float fishing. one is for chub, tench, trout, medium size carp, etc. The other two, especially one in particular, I can catch carp up to 20-30lbs. again I use these for float fishing. They are pretty expensive. when I travel to italy and fish there, everybody uses telescopic rods. I even brought back to the states my dads fishing rods that he used in italy over 30 years ago. Thats wha they use. My trout tele's are 11 ft. My carp and multispecies rods are 16-17 feet long.
  14. Ah, Geritol is the answer my friend. (Apologies to you youngsters. If you don't remember Lawrence Welk, you won't remember Geritol). Your local senior center has bulk sales several times a year. No need to worry, though, until adult Pampers are on the horizon. <:///><
  15. Interesting request. I'm finding now that I creak when playing a fish. Just waiting for something to fall off or break.🤗

  17. Maybe try googling the brand name
  18. I agree with Alan. They do feel different. And they are noisy - the one I have creaks when playing a fish, which always makes me nervous. I'm never sure how much creaking it's going to take before something lets go. I've also had the tip section "re-telescope" while playing a fish. My opinion is they might be fine for regular fishing, but not for carp.
  19. Hi... nnyone got any of these? I have been given three but don't know what batteries they take and there doesn't seem to be any indication on the alarm. The problem with some bite alarms is that they often take small, non-standard batteries of relatively high voltage, like 12v.Each of these takes 2 cells and I don't want to put 12v ones in if they take 1.5v and fry the curcuits.
  20. Due to their compactness they are ideal for long distance travel, by plane for example. The action is compromised by the number of joints. They are usable if you have to, but don’t expect them to cast as well or play a fish as nicely as a two-piece rod.
  21. While looking around online at carp rods I've noticed a lot of telescoping rods offered. Has anyone tried one? Pros? Cons?
  22. This 3 Part Series by Mario Kok give us an extraordinary insight to his making and using boilies to catch big carp in the wild waters of Mexico. Mario is an exceptional 'thinking' angler and there is no doubt CAG members will find these articles incredibly helpful in their quest to catch big carp in North American waters. We will also be adding a link / download for the Boilie Calculator spreadsheet created by Mario. This will allow you to input a list of your intended boilie ingredient quantities and get a preview of the overall Nutritional Values (protein, carb and fat percentages) together with key information on the Hardness of the boilie, Ease of Processing the ingredients and the overall level of 'attraction' or Instant Response. Please note that you must be a CAG member to download these files.
