That is a HUGE carp! Carp are the "forgotten fighters". I love catching carp as they are very powerful fish that will deifnately give any angler a tremendous challenge! Additonally they are great for some young anlger fun as well!

Hi, I saw you commented on the Gar Pic that you have been to the Trinity River area in pursuit. I'm planning a trip down maybe March break, do you have any recomendations in regards to guides or bodies of water? and time of year for a Canadian to go down? Thanks

Biggest carp was 26 lbs, 34 inches. I do belive the fish was a Spanish mackerel, caught it fishing on Kelley's fleet at off Miami beach.

Yeah, I got a bunch of Pissed off Brits after me a couple years back, I was accused of "mistreating" carp because I killed some for some poor folk too eat. I know all about the clubs, they actually pre-bait the areas I fish in, so I can't complain too much about them. Looks like the've been able too make something out of the dying Long Sault shore fishing situation for other species, the only real success I've had shore fishing there besides carp was for Northern Pike, but they're getting very scarce lately. I know have a boat out in Lake St Francis near Lancaster, the fishery for bass, walleye pike and perch is really great there. Then again, I've never tried boat fishing at Long Sault. I've hear about the bird sanctuary at Morrisburg, I haven't been fishing down that far yet as I'm from Montreal.

hey freshwater, long sault is good for carp. i grew up in long sault and spent many summers at the first bridge. i love the good fight of a carp, but any more there is to much carp there. the bass and walleye has really gone down the tubes there. The canadian carp club has taken that area right over. at the bird sanctuary in morrisburg i noticed a sign that prohibits the carp clubs from fishing there. atleast i think thats what it meant. I never see the europeans there so they must have made it a law. at one time there used to be a huge bow tourny in longsault for carp. it was pretty big, alot of people would come from the states and other places. i used to shoot them with the bow, it was nothing for us to shoot 50-100 in a day. sometimes if you were lucky you could shoot through one carp into another and get two at a time. there is another european who set up a carp club in morrisburg. that whole area of the st lawrence is over populated with carp. i think its time to start culling some of them off. the carp clubs dont like that though. they are making a fortune with all the europens that come over. carp is becoming a money business there and its throwing off the balance of the river. but i still love the fight of a carp.

I would trade our carp for many of your saltwater species. Still waiting for the dept of wildlife to stock tarpons in the St Lawrence River...

I think she might have snapped my line a few weeks ago, I guess I'll have to catch her again once she puts on another 5-10 lbs.
