Shallow Water Fishing Carp Tackle

There is one that about fishing that you must never underestimate, and that is having the proper carp fishing tackle. Without it, you will fail, so these tips should improve your next trip for trophy fish. When fishing shallow waters, your carp gear, rods, reels, line, tackle, all must be in top shape. This equipment is important since the shallow water allows the fish to see the line better and be a lot more wary of the fisherman's presence. Lighter line is needed, such as less than 10 pound test. Also, fluorocarbon leaders can be of great use, if you want to spend the money on that gear. A good bite detection system can aid you in detecting a strike. You do not want to be moving around the bank much in shallow or clear waters. You carp fishing rod and carp fishing reel should be able to cast a long way in such bodies of water. The trophies may be far away and you have to be able to reach them. With using lighter line, be sure to have a long handled net to aide you in landing a monster. I have not mentioned much about baits or other tips, but they are similar and you can find those in the other posts about tackle and gear. Good luck on your next trip. Remember, these tips can work anywhere, US, Canada, France, Germany, Sweden, Russia, wherever. Fishing is a world wide activity and sport, so let us all get involved.


Catching Fish From Shore

When gathering up your Carp Fishing Tackle and getting ready to go catch a monster fish, you must know a few key tips that I want to go over. First, many people do not have access to a boat. That means you must fish from shore and your tackle must be able to allow you to reach longer into the water to find the trophies. A carp fishing rod and reel that will allow you to cast over 100 yards is a must in many waters, especially rivers when you need to get to the feeding areas. Grab your entire tackle box and head to the lake or river and make sure you have strong carp tackle.

Once you get there and get ready, be sure to have your rod holders, bite alarms, or any other equipment you will think you will need. Some people just grab a stick and ram it into the ground. You will find sticks all over the world, so that should not be a problem whether you are in America, Europe, Asia, etc.

Getting your bait together should be another proority. Canned corn, worms, boilies, night crawlers, or other carp baits will work. Dough balls are also a solid method of hooking into a monster fish. Be sure to have a stout rod with a reel capable of holding much line. Rods and reels are often overlooked. Your tackle must be strong too. Do not buy cheap swivels, hooks, and leaders. These will cost you a fish of a lifetime. Good luck.
