Hey folks,

Since I moved up north from Toronto I have missed two fish: the salmon and the mighty carp!

I would hate for them to mess with the already delicate ecosystem of lake Nipissing but if they happened to be here in abundance I would definitely put in the time to catch a few. There aren't many fish that you can target in fresh water where every fish you catch is over 10lbs.

I was down fishing Rice Lake near Peterborough in May. Needless to say that there is a super abundant carp fishery in that lake. Our biggest fish was 26lbs and the smallest was 11. This video also has a short animation discussing rigs and baits. Enjoy!

Koke,

Hate to say it bud they are in Nipissing. I caught one a few years ago in the West Arm. Thankfully I haven't caught anymore.

@Muskyhunter

Oh yeah? I think I've heard of a few being caught. I wonder if the conditions up here aren't quite right for them to be abundant because it seems like everywhere down south is filthy with them.

Koke,

I would agree the conditions must not be suitable for them as we really dont have many this far up North.

Anybody know if they have carp around the Sault, Thunder Bay or Kenora area? Personally not that we want them - sorry just being honest.

That's just it. It's something you can do from your dock, you can crack a beer and relax with your pals. It's pure catch and release fishing and carp get huge!

@Muskyhunter - "Personally not that we want them - sorry just being honest."

That's alright. In Canada carp are a generally despised species and they are not natural to North America. In other parts of the world carp are revered in the same way as musky are here. In certain parts of Europe to kill a carp is would be viewed in the same way as killing a musky ---Blasphemy. Here people go around bow fishing them and using them as fertilizer.

When I was a kid, not drinking age, me and buddies would fish river behind one buddies house. We would catch carp, cat fish and sheep head mostly. We would sell them to the Americas that were fishing along the river. We would always make enough to pay for the gas and a case of beer. I caught my 1st carp since then on Saturday trolling for walleye, man what a fight, I had forgotten.

AMEN brother! some of my most memorable fishing adventures have been right off the dock with some friends. in fact got a dock fishing day with some friends coming up and wondered if your brilliant carp method might work for some drum {sheephead}? they are also a blast to catch and get huge. they feed the same as carp and nip has a bunch. maybe they are what keep the carp in check? i love it when they fool someone into thinking they have a world record walleye......

I've always been impressed with the fight of a drum. I have often wondered if a bolt rig would work on other fish in the same way as it does with carp. It is truly a rig that works in the opposite way than most other fishing rigs. I know that drum have a similar set of teeth in the back of their throat that they use for crunching up mussels and such so I think there may be a possibility this rig would work for them. I wonder if they would be more interested in worms or if they would go for corn?
