Monster Carp The Size Of A Whale

Monster Carp The Size Of A Whale


Everyone has that special fish. The story they tell at Thanksgiving dinner, “that one time,” that lives in family infamy. A proud man keeps an ornament, cleanly propped above the fireplace. More humble fisherman might never tell the story at all, smirking to god over their good fortune. Regardless of the path a fisherman chooses, catching the right Carp will quench the thirst of any outdoors adventurer (as long as they aren’t hungry).

Carp are some of the most magnificent species under the water, frequently willing to fight a lure right off the pole. The Carp pictured above, a whopping monster Carp, was brought down some years ago in frigid northern waters. Monster Carp like this survive all over the United States, as well as Canada. Adventurers looking to grab a similar monster Carp, often need not look further than their local stream. Carp grow “into” their environment, often allowing “monster carp,” like the one above, to grow throughout the entirety of their lifespan, find a deep stream and a monster Carp may live there.

Known predominantly as a bottom feeder, often mislabeled and frequently released, Carp fishing is about the adrenaline rush of bagging not just any fish, but thee “monster Carp.” Tales spawn from all over the world of particular individual monster Carp reaching 200-300-400 pounds. Even ancient artwork, from North American Indians long since evacuated, suggests monster Carp have been a favorite grab for sport fisherman, dating back centuries. It is human nature, a fisherman’s most natural and innate desire, to bag a BIG fish. Not just a Big fish, a monster, a giant, a Goliath, from here to here and over there. A “that one timer.” Monster Carp provide specifically that desire, an opportunity to quench that natural thirst for fishing sports greatest achievement. North American Carp like this are some of my favorite fish personally, so I am biased to the craft I must admit. I love to cast my line, medium action, and get to work.

Monster Carp fishing is awesome, ideally with a medium action line, designed to bend about 2/3’s down the rod and providing great safety. I give up some distance on my cast, sometimes I even RC Fish, I prefer streams, where I can see the monster. Reeling in a 100 pound fish provides that moment of satisfaction. Don’t hesitate, don’t worry about slender details, find a local stream and go to work!

Tackle Test Shimano Vs Big Pit Baitrunner


What a month it has been for the carp anglers of the U.K. and abroad. As is normally the case at this time of year the fish have really started to feed well and some massive fish have been caught.

The British record has been rattled by no less than three different 50lbs plus carp which incredibly came out over the same weekend. Forties are throwing themselves onto the banks at most of the big fish venues around the U.K., and some even bigger fish have been caught from faraway lands. So here is my take on Shimano rods and reels.

Tackle Test Shimano Big Pit Baitrunner

As continental carping gets more popular, and anglers are casting greater distances in the U.K., there has been a demand for bigger and better reels. The two big players in the reel game are of course Daiwa and Shimano. Both companies offer some stunning equipment but for a long time anglers have been requesting a baitrunner version of the larger reels. These have now been developed by Shimano and this has prompted a price war between the two giants. Daiwa haven’t actually got a baitrunner reel out, but they have now cut the price of their main big pit reels and are also offering a free baitrunner conversion. As a result a lot of shops have lowered the price for their Shimano reels to compete with Daiwa. So there has never been as good an occasion as now to get yourself some new reels. Now, whilst I have not got hold of any of the Shimano reels myself, I have had a good look and play with them and they are something special. The main problem is that they seem to be so popular that rocking horse droppings are easier to get hold of. Upon initial investigation they are quite bulky but they have to be, to accommodate the massive gearing and baitrunner system that is housed in the rear body of the reel. They are however as smooth as silk to reel in, and the baitrunner facility itself is faultless and similar to the smaller Shimano Baitrunners, being located at the rear of the reel. Blue in colour, they look the part and at an average price of £115.99 per reel they won’t damage the bank account too much if you want to upgrade.

The best prices I have found so far are here at The Tackleshop

    Irrespective where you are fishing the fishing reels must be the best quality and not let you down. If you are in the process of building your fishing kit, you should pay particular attention to the kind of equipment you are putting together. A penny pinched here and there could cost you a prized trophy on any of your fishing trips. There are different sets of equipment for different game. You definitely so not want to fish for shark with a rod and reel designed to go after carp do you? As you gain experience an angler you will be adding equipment to your fishing gear. You should only add the best and proven equipment if you want to prevent frustration and disappointment on any of your fishing trips.

    The reel on your fishing rod is a very important bit of equipment, especially if you are fishing in the salt waters of the deep seas. The size of the fish that you can hook can be monstrous and put up a big fight when you try to land it. The reel is essentially a set of gears that facilitate reeling in a huge weight. When you hook a large fish such as a Marlin or a shark you will ensure that you are able to bring it in without losing your equipment. This is the reason many fishing boats have a seatbelt for the angler and a fastening system for the rod as well. The saltwater fishing reel is designed to lock in a way that will prevent the reel from un-winding. The gears on the reel facilitate the angler to effortlessly reel in the fish a little at a time.

    If you hook a large fish it is going to put up a great fight to prevent you from bringing it in. You will have to be patient if you do not want to lose your hook and lure. Reel in the fish slowly allowing it to swim and trash around in the water. If your fishing rod is secured to the boat you do not have to worry about losing it, at the most you will have to cut the line and let the fish go. But if you have patience, and the right equipment, you can have the biggest fish for a trophy. Basically you’re fishing reel and line is what should not let you down.

    Salt water fishing reels differ in size and use. A reel too big will not serve the purpose of fishing for smaller fish and a small reel will not be any use when you are fishing for big game. Experience will teach most of what you need to know about fishing and the equipment that is just right for the game you are after. Experienced anglers will teach you where to get that equipment from.
