I love to fish for carp in the spring. Great fight. No just for carp gear just a med/heavy rod and spinning reel and a hair jig set up with corn. I have used carp bait and balls but corn works just fine and cost .33 a can. I do use worms for the river though that way I never know what will be on the end of the line.
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
