First post here :-). I'm from the Minneapolis area and love fishing for carp. Catch and release of course. Fished one of my spots on the Mississippi river last night. Hooked 7, landed 5 in 2 hours. Didn't weigh them but I would think they were all between 8-22 lbs. When your landing net breaks, you know the carp has some serious torque behind it :-) Always up for hearing about carp tournaments, fishing meetups in the area. Am fishing a small carp contest weekend in a lake-not happy that all fish caught will be disposed off, but I guess they have their reasons for controlling population in a lake. Cheeers...

Hi All, I am looking for some suggestions about shore fishing for Carp in Ottawa. Some basic research indicates the spawn near the Carp river in the spring. I have seen videos of people catching Carp at Watsons Mill along the Rideau. I would like to know where I should be trying in the fall. some have suggested the rideau canal but given the water level is being drawn down I am not sure how good this will be now. Given what I have read, this alternative species needs a lot of special techniques to catch so I can understand why I have not caught any by accident. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
