Great pictures Axor, I have never seen a Golden Rudd before.

Is that your lunch in the perch picture? You should drop by Tim Hortons before you head out... :P

There must be a reason why there is a closed season at that time of year in flowing waters and I doubt it has anything to do with the carp or perch or stench for that matter that you are catching in that lake - fish away my friend! Are there trout populations in the flowing waters?

Glad to see that you're getting out, your son will be joining you soon one day I would think hey?

Cheers,

Wayne

The Tench is a species of its own, they are green mainly but there are some commercial golden ones all have tiny sacles and red eyes, they are bottom dewllers and and live mainly live on the pond life.
They have been knnow as the doctor fish as it was thought that the slime on them had healing propities for other fish.

Hi Axor, for floating kibble do you thread it on a hair rig. The carp here are crazy all over right now and I'm convinced floating baits would be killer
Thanks

I'm thinking that unless the carp are hitting flies on the surface, they are only interested in spawning.

The Carp are spawning that is why you see them rolling on the surface. Try throwing pieces of dry bread and see if they eat it and put your small hook in one piece or just corn on a hairrig the normal way. I think they are more interested in spawning than food, just like us.

Here is a website which is Carp Anglers Group. http://www.carpanglersgroup.com/forum/index.php

This is the forum for CAG and it has a load of information on tactics, baits etc. It also has the regional forums which includes Canada of which most people posting are from the GTA. I have done a lot of Carp angling in the passed but I now live in NB where there are no Carp that I know of.

Also if you wish to purchase Carp gear online Wacker Bait and Tackle in Chicago will send it to Canada. He has prices on his website for Canada. http://www.wackerbaits.com/
Or on the CAG forum in the Canadian section they talk of Carp tackle available in tackle shops in the GTA

Visit these 2 web sites they have a load of usefull information. Also youtube is a fantastic source for Carp information.

Carp angling is growing  in North America because we have an abundance of large fish.


Good Luck
