Why Carp fishing is not as popular in the USA as it is Europe.

Why isn’t Carp fishing in the USA as popular as it is in Europe?

Why isn’t Carp fishing in the USA as popular as it is in Europe?

I’m often wondering why in the USA there isn’t as much interest in fishing for Carp as there is in Europe. I’ve tried to explain it to several people, I wish I knew the real answer, but here goes. From what I’m told is that the Carp here in the U.S. are not as tasty as European Carp, true or false? Personally I don’t think that’s really why. The other reason I heard is the Carp in Europe are HUGE compared to ours. I’m going to investegate a little more and report back, so in the meantime watch these videos and watch us fishing for Carp in the U.S.

Here is another one caught by my father, at the Carters lake in GA, USA. This big common was one of the biggest ones we cought so far from Carters lake. We could’t weigh it because we had no scale, but I guess you guys can guess ho much it weighs. We will have a scale for our future videos, hopefully. Enjoy and comment. Thanks

    @chicagoblast Buy a good medium or medium heavy action rod. I use Ugly Stiks for Catfishing and catching carp.  They run about $30.

  5. Maddawgbaits says:

    theres no sport in using those huge rods. use an ultra light and see how fun it is

    Use bread…more specifically white bread to catch carp.

    @3Szczupak The K-1 BAITS Carp Starter kit has everything you need to catch a carp. I would also use a packbait & flavor combo kit to attract the fish. The instructions how to mix and use the bait come with it. These baits & Tackle are ideal for everything you will need, Good Luck!!

  27. jabram1 says:

    @buggyblah I cast to where the fish were showing. Seemed silly not to, seen as that is where they were asking for it LOL!!

  28. buggyblah says:

    @jabram1 oh that’s pretty cool, howd you decide where to cast? or did they all just go there?

  29. jabram1 says:

    @buggyblah We did not pre-bait, this was just turning up and turning them on with K-1 BAITS.

  30. buggyblah says:

    did throw out some corn the days before fishing, or was this with no previous preparation
