  1. Hey folks, I put together this animation detailing some basic rigging and baits for carp for people who don't know where to start. I hope you guys will appreciate it. Simple Rigging And Baits For Carp
  2. Hey all!! The weather finally warmed in KC so I took the opportunity to take a stab at one of the very few open water access, which is a reliable, though smaller-fish venue. Set one corn-rig, and two hair rigs, and viola!- this beautiful 4-13 golden carp- it fought like a summer fish and just before netting I thought I had a mirror, but alas, not to be......still, nice to get out -only a couple months til ATC!!!!......hope everyone had a great holiday season!!.......
  3. Hello all!!. Weeeelllllll, we had all-time historic flooding in KC so it put the clamp on creek fishing, so I had no choice but to fish flooded ponds and focused on tying more hair-rigs, which I just hadn't refined and been successful on ( I've caught a total of 3, yes 3! carp on hair rigs in the past year and have been very disheartened, but this week has been different!.....One afternoon I caught 6 carp,(ranging from 2-6lbs) this 2lb 15oz goldfish, 2 snapping turtles, and 3 channel catfish, -one half on a hair rig, and the others on the subtle bit technique including 2 doubles! (
  4. Tried a local lake very early this morning with no hits, then went to a local creek and was 5 for 5, anywhere from 8-17lbs, the latter of which had a broken hair rig with shrink tubing and 3 pieces of fake corn-my hook was right next to it!!!!.. couldn't tell how long the fish had it; I've never seen other fisherman here at all, so maybe the fish come from upstream, but it's be a ways-no good pools for a mile or so.......Soooo, I gained tackle today instead of losing a rig!!....
  5. So....I have caught a total of two! carp on a hair rig with an in-line NNB method feeder packed with a strawberry, corn, panko and oat mix and both fish were small. No carp on straight hair rigs with or without egg sinkers, weights, etc... Neither fish "self-hooked" like I've seen on videos, and both were caught on #4 Gamakatsu #4 octopus circle hooks. I have used eagle claw #6 straight shanked hooks with NO Carp, but plenty of catfish and turtles....To me the slack-line subtle bite sweet corn rods are out-fishing the hair rigs (poles are side-by side) 100x better...Both were hooked with the s
  6. Hi all! Brand new newbie to carp fishing- been fishing mostly sweet corn and sweet peas on free-line with very small circle hooks and a split shot on ultralight rods and having good success, but i'm intrigued and have seen that hair rigs appear to hook more fish. I've tied numerous hair rigs with either 30lb green braided or 8lb monofilament to a #6 straight shank Eagleclaw hook ( or the two hooks provided by CAG-membership-thanks!) or circle hook tied to a small crane swivel, tied to monofilament (8lb test) with a bead and small egg sinker or bullet sinker. I've even just used spli
  7. When ever I use corn on my hair rig sometimes it will tangle around the hook on the cast. Any suggestions? I have it secured in place with a small piece of tubing if that's important.
