Welcome to our Carp Fishing Home Page

Common carp are extremely popular with anglers in many parts of Europe and among a small niche of anglers in the United States.  Carp are also popular among spear and bow fisherman.  For this section, we will be focusing on the common carp, however, there are many other species of carp as well.  Common carp can grow up to nearly 4 feet and weigh more than 80 pounds, although, most carp will range from 2 to 3 pounds in most ponds, lakes and rivers.  Bigger fish in the 8 to 10 pound range are fairly common throughout the country and fish over 15 pounds are considered trophy fish.

Winter Fishing for Carp


Carp will shut down for the most part during the winter.  They prefer warmer water, so don’t expect to catch many carp in the winter, especially if you are ice fishing.  In the warmer states, fishing can pick up during warm fronts.
